A special exhibition will be held to mark the unveiling of Tomohiro Yasui’s latest Kami-Robo publication, which features paper- craft fighters.

Yasui has steadily built an international following for his highly unique Kami-Robo fighters, which were most recently exhibited at the Chopo Museum in Mexico, from Dec. 2010 thru Mar. 2011.

His first Kami-Robo craft book, titled "Easy and Fun Paper Craft: Kami-Robo--Make and Play," is to be published by Socym Co. It will be in bookstores, selling for 1995 yen, nationwide from mid August.

To commemorate the publication, @btf will hold a Kami-Robo exhibition from Aug. 2-28, featuring every Kami-Robo figure that Yasui has ever made, including newly created ones for this book. On Aug. 28, Yasui will conduct workshops, helping participants make their own original figures with paper and wire. The two workshops are open to 15 people each. Elementary-school-aged children and younger children should be accompanied by an adult.
