The Nail is a handmade book that features a small collection of Japanese proverbs in english and japanese. The book is designed to be read from right to left (in japanese) and left to write (in english). This allows a native speaker of either English or Japanese to have a similar experience of the same book. Each spread has a proverb printed in both english and japanese overlaying one another. The left page of each spread features the Japanese language prominantnly while the right features the english version more strongly.
