España Grand Tarde. Photographs and text by Ikko Narahara. Designed by Mitsuo Katsui. Kyuryudo, Tokyo, 1969. Unpaged. Large quarto. Color, illustrated boards. No dust jacket as issued. Hot pastel colored endpapers. Three-strand silk ribbon bookmark. Numerous full-page, double gatefold gravure reproductions. Supplemental softbound volume with matching wrappers and illustrated endpapers contains Narahara's essay titled, "The Promised Journey". Illustrated paper over boards slipcase.

Along with Eikoh Hosoe, Shomoei Tomatsu, Kikuji Kawada, Akira Tanno, and Akira Sato, Ikko Narahara was a founding member of the famed VIVO agency. This book is divided into sections titled Grand Tarde, Fiesta, and Vaya Con Dios that deal with the bull fight, the urban life in the streets, and finally the peasant life in the countryside. The influence of William Klein is visible in this volume's dramatic close-ups, erratic croppings, and full-page bleeds (which, in the case of the abundant double gatefold spreads, are actually "four-page bleeds"). The high contrast, grainy images give the work a tone that is at once highly impressionistic, raw and visceral. A fascinating and somewhat underrated item that should, in our opinion, rank with the best books of the period!

Fine- in Fine- slipcase; slight bump to slipcase at its crown; corners very lightly nicked; trace of foxing to rear board of book; booklet Fine.
