Eikoh Hosoe: Barakei Shinshuban (Ordeal by Roses Re-edited) Eikoh Hosoe: Barakei Shinshuban (Ordeal by Roses Re-edited)
In this re-edit of Barakei (Killed by Roses), the 1963 original, Mishima himself re-ordered the images into five sections. The famed designer Tadanori Yokoo designed what was intended to be a memorial to Mishima, who was intending on committing ritual suicide to coincide with the book's publication. As Parr and Badger describe, Yokoo designed one of the most complex photobooks ever published. "Hosoe's photographs are printed in the most luscious photogravure imaginable, with blacks as deep as the ocean."

"This book, Geisha: A Photographic History, 1880-1910, documents the intimate life and culture of the nineteenth-century geisha. It portrays these artists in a cultural reality created by staged studio photography, private scenes, and rare outdoor images. The geisha is pictured performing her daily rituals and various arts—bathing, dressing, hair styling, dining, dancing, and playing instruments."—the publisher READ MORE

: Peter Fraser Peter Fraser
"In the illuminating essay he has written to accompany this new work by Peter Fraser, Gerry Badger tells of the mix of feelings he had on first seeing one of Fraser's photographs. Moving from surprise, bafflement and incomprehension to admiration and pleasure, he experienced the "flame of recognition" when, to quote James Joyce, the "whatness" of a thing is revealed."—the publisher
