Publisher's Description

Signed and Numbered. Edition of 600. Cover is Silkscreened and printed on canvas.

Daido Moriyama’s Tales of Tono, which takes its name from a collection of Japanese rural folk legends, was first published in 1976. Its black-and-white photo diptychs and spreads were shot in the countryside of northern Honshu, Japan. The book was reissued in different versions in 2007 and 2012, but both the original and later versions were pocket-size paperback editions in which the limited format seemed to detract from the pictures. This new edition, which Moriyama says is definitive, appears in a larger format and includes 49 previously unpublished photographs. In characteristic Moriyama style, the deep blacks and casual framing of the pictures is noticeably palpable.
