[PHOTOGRAPHY - AVANT GARDE] KOISHI Kiyoshi. SATSUEI - SAKUGA NO SHINGIHO. Tokyo: Genkosha, Showa 11 . Small square 8vo., cloth-bound, no jacket as issued, in a printed cardboard slipcase. Koishi was one of the most important photographers of Japan in the prewar period. His breakthrough photo book, EARLY SUMMER NERVES, is considered one of the finest works of avant-garde photography ever produced. Here Genkosha has commissioned him to create a guide for creating photos with his new and experimental techniques of framing and development. Its 294 + pages are shot through from beginning to end with b+w reproductions of his experimental photography. Overall near fine condition. Very unusual, especially thus.
