【Look at the book】Camellia Stationery Store
"At the same time as choosing an item, you are also choosing a life."
"Camellia Stationery Store" is a stationery store on the surface, and also provides services for ghostwriting. This book is composed of different commissions. Each letter that needs to be written by the protagonist has a story and a reason for needing ghostwriting. There is no bloody plot, no ups and downs, each story has its own ups and downs, and flows gently into the hearts of readers. So this book won't make you cry, but readers can find some fragments of life in different details, and these text fragments will fill a gap somewhere in our hearts in an undisturbed way.
Every object has its own special meaning and language, even if it is very small, but the good life is composed of these seemingly inconspicuous details. For each entrusted case in the book, the protagonist will select the most suitable items for the letter, including pens, paper, ink, envelopes, stamps and even fonts, all of which are tailored according to the client's story, so that the mind can be in the best possible way. Accurate and complete way to transmit to the recipient in the form of a letter, not only in the hand, but also in the heart. From this, readers can understand the necessity of "choosing things" for life, because when we choose things, we are also choosing life.
"Camellia Stationery Store" describes life through objects and dialogues. It does not deliberately tell readers any tips and answers about life, but it also conforms to life itself. With delicate brushwork, Ogawa Ito is good at describing everyday details, and "Camellia Stationery Store" brings out her characteristics to the fullest. Through her nuanced observation and sensitivity to objects and relationships, she writes page after page of natural and true storylines and writes them into each reader's heart in an unpretentious way.
Back to reality, "What is an ideal life?" There is no answer, because the answer should be found and filled in by each of us.
