Meaning of the House. Photographs by Kishin Shinoyama. Text by Koji Taki. Ushio Publishing, Tokyo, 1975. 250 pp. Oblong folio. First edition. Boldly SIGNED in beautiful calligraphic Kanji on front flyleaf. Clothbound. No dust jacket as issued. Numerous full-page color reproductions. Commentary in Japanese with brief text by the photographer in English.

A study in the metaphysics of architecture, this stunnig book is comprised of portfolios focusing on specific houses. Shinoyama attempts to locate what he refers to as 'the language of a house,' which he defines as the 'various signs evident in a house that has been occupied (i.e. not simply built)--not so much substance as what I would call events...the language we discern in the house, to put it somewhat extravagatly, escapes the bonds of architectural history and the intentions of the architect and artisan.'

Just a trace of wear to crown of spine; some minor 'dings' to boards; otherwise a Fine copy.
