One Picture Book #80.
Photographs by Risaku Suzuki.
Nazraeli Press, Portland, 2013. 16 pp., 11 color illustrations and one original print, 5½x7¼".
In Risaku Suzuki's second contribution to our One Picture Book series, he zeroes in on the building blocks that form the snow pictures for which he has become renowned: the individual snowflake. Here, Suzuki presents twelve breathtaking photographs of individual snowflakes (or 'letters sent from heaven', as Ukichiro Nakaya described them) in a pitch perfect follow-up to his earlier monograph, 'Yuki Sakura.'
