Nazraeli Press, Portland, 2010. 72 pp., 65 illustrations, 8½x11".
In 2006, RAM (Tokyo) published a slender, very beautiful artist's book by Michael Kenna called 'In Japan' on the occasion of a major exhibition of Kenna's work at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. The first printing sold out almost immediately. A new, expanded edition of this rare book has just been released, and will be distributed in the United States and Europe exclusively by Nazraeli Press. 'In Japan: Conversation with the Land' is beautifully bound in vellum, with a traditional Japanese thread binding. The book opens with an introduction by acclaimed Japanese curator Ryuichi Kaneko. Advance orders are encouraged: three hundred copies will be distributed outside of Japan.
