Tokyo Droning

Tokyo Droning

One of several labels operated by Ian Hawgood. Following the two album releases in 2009, the following rules are applied to new releases:

"1. base materials must be bought within 10 minute cycle ride of anywhere [Ian has] lived in Japan
2. each release will have a different stamp and photo/polaroid/negative/kodachrome which is not copied [...] and is thus totally unique
3. packing must be pure origami (ie. no glue, tape etc to actual cover)

Works are released in series (each series has 6 works) [...] Each release comes individually number[ed] 001 - 250, with custom packaging using locally made paper, 2 x card inlays, washi masking tape, unique stamp to the back of the package, inside one inlay is a photo (not copied and so unique to the package) and an ektachrome or kodachrome slide (again not copied) to the other."
