From the back cover:
"Nobuyoshi Araki's Tokyo gathers twenty-eight exquisite diptychs by the artist from the 1970s. As one of Araki's first independent book projects, Tokyo is the prelude to his searing and ongoing exploration of life and the urban space of his hometown.
More than forty years after the first edition, Tokyo is being republished - as a bibliophile's monograph, supplemented for the first time by both the German and English translations of Kōji Taki's original essay, along with new texts by Yasufumi Nakamori and Inka Graeve Ingelmann."
This new edition of Tokyo is co-published by "Only Photography" and "Pinakhotek der Moderne", Münich. The contents are identical, but the covers differ. The "Only Photography" version is 40 € (publisher's pricing), the "Pinakothek der Moderne" version is 36 € (publisher's pricing).
