Fine condition in Near Fine, price clipped dust jacket (moderate rubbing).

A stellar lineup presenting four of Japan's superstar photographers. Eikoh Hosoe has produced an essay that dramatizes the legend of Kamaitach—a demonic spirit that visits rice fields and slashes its victims to death. Shomei Tomatsu has been absorbed with documenting the effects of the nuclear bombings of Japan along with other newsworthy events. Masahisa Fukase has produced an epic series on crows as a symbol of evil. And Daido Moriyama presents us with his graphic interpretation of Japan's culture. Also included is Mark Holborn's essay on the Japanese photographic climate.
