We are offering copies of the third edition (see "Suggestions" tab).

This book tells the story of a criminal investigation, in B & W images, in the japanese countryside of the 50's. The artist followed the investigators in their roaming of the area, the crime scene, the surrounding neighborhoods, and into their offices... The images he brought convey a deep feeling of doubt, a strange atmosphere, and hints of fear...

This book is really beautifully printed, with strong contrasts and grainy images, combined with a design on black background and Japanese binding. No wonder why this book made it to many "Best book" lists in 2011. The linen cover with a tipped-in image, and the elastic binding remind us of a notebook, or of a jewel case!

This book is currently in its third printing (the cover image changes with each printing), we are offering here copies of the second printing.
This book is listed in "The Photobook: A History volume III" by Martin Parr & Gerry Badger.

100 pages - Hardcover, no DJ
