Samba Samba Brazil. Photographs by Jun Miki. Kenko-Sha, Tokyo, 1967. Unpaged. Small folio. First edition. Hardbound. Illustrated card slipcase. Original insert. (no dust jacket as issued). Gravure and color reproductions. Japanese text with English and Portuguese abstract. Insert with technical details laid in.

Reproductions of Miki's photographs of Rio and Brazil in the late sixties--the architecture, the people, (the women) printed in rich gravure.
This is the only large-format book Miki Jun published in his life-time. The dark photogravures are a superb record of Brazil in the 60s, capturing the amazing energy and the optimism of the period. Parts of the new capital of Brazilia had just been built by Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa and their grand architectural vision is documented in a series of impressive black-white images. Kenko-sha's gravure printing is among the best ever!. Only one copy in OCLC.



Near Fine in Near Fine slipcase; light rubbing; minor bumps to upper corners; case slightly age darkened; with small areas of abrasion to opening; bump to base of spine.
