A Box of Ku. Photographs by Masao Yamamoto. Texts (in English and Japanese) by Shintaro Ajioka and Hiromi Nakamura, Curator, Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. Nazraeli Press, Tucson, AZ, 1998. 112 pp. with 80 four-color plates. Texts contained in separate 10-page folding insert. Limited edition of 100 copies. Hand-numbered and signed in black marker on the first page by Yamamoto. Full linen, with title stamped in glossy black on front cover and spine (this hardcover version was only published for the deluxe edition). No dust jacket as issued. Accompanied by an original toned and hand-altered original gelatin silver print (4 1/4" x 1 7/8" in., signed in black marker on verso with a red Japanese signature stamp, print edition 100--physical alterations to the prints, including creasing and light application of gold paint, were intentionally made by the artist. As such, each print is unique). The print and book rest in individual 'compartments' of varying depth, which are themselves contained in a much larger custom-made, purple clothbound clamshell case, with title blind-stamped on front cover.
Print is illustrated at right.

"The photographs of Japanese artist Masao Yamamoto remind one of postcards or snapshots, records of intimate moments that are at once fleeting and eternal, private and universal. Bent, frayed and stained, the jewel-like prints -- most of which are small enough to fit into the palm of a hand -- transcend their medium and become more than their subject."--the publisher
