Publisher's Description

Trade Edition of 1000 copies

Our newest publication on the work of Japanese artist Masao Yamamoto, Omizuao is an accordion-bound 'pillow book'—a collection of landscapes, flowers and female nudes. The artist has used the accordion format to create an installation which measures some 14 feet when fully opened, but which can also be viewed as 45 individual spreads. Beautifully printed in process color on uncoated art paper, Omizuao is hand bound in two clear-lacquered hardwood covers, and presented in a matching wooden box. Many of the images it includes were made specifically for this book, and are presented here for the first time.

'[Yamamoto's images] show how wondrous black-and-white photography can be and are a refreshing throwback to a time when photographs were not treated as precious commodities.' —The New York Times


Limited Edition of 100 copies with a signed and numbered print, 3¼×4¾ inches.
