(Avant Garde). 4to volume 27x19.8cm bound western-style in decorated boards. The book design and covers are by Onchi Kōshirō 恩地孝四郎, perhaps the most important book designer of the 20th century in Japan. This volume and Hiko Kanno 飛行官能 [The Sensation of Flight] are considered masterpieces. In addition, one may not ignore the fact of this work’s great impact on Japanese photographers of the day and thereafter. The text and selected images provided a new artistic vocabulary for an entire generation of photographers.
Foxing and overall toning to slipcase. But, this book is unusually hard to find, particularly in its slipcase. This is a very good copy of the amazing covers and book design of the work. The slipcase is very faded but intact and remarkable.
Only the second copy we have ever handled.
