Publisher's Description

The Trade editon comes as 3 books: a unbound softcover, a hand bound softcover, and a Japanese stab bound hardcover enclosed in a unique, two-section slipcase.

Signed on the hardcover book's spine. Published in a small edition of 450.

"I have been following Kimura's work for a few years, and he is destined to be seen as a master of the photobook form in years to come. The unique objects he produces year in year out testify to his willingness to lay bare his personal traumas and melancholic stories, and this is his best book yet. […] A process of exploration and discovery drives the book, but Kimura's ability to construct such beguiling handmade objects means that we feel this book was made just for us, that it is the only one of its kind in the world, that he is entrusting us with it. As I said above callingSnowflakes Dog Man a 'book' seems slightly ridiculous, it is three distinct publications (two softcover and one hardcover) that oscillate around a central narrative about the passing of Kimura's Father. The dreamy gentleness and subtlety of the images is intoxicating and disturbing. These three books are housed in a handmade slipcase that collectively offers the viewer a feeling of discovery, and a tactile experience of memory. Finally, the strength of his images means this book feels like you're tapping directly into Kimura's cerebral cortex.”
