Excerpts from a short explanatory text at the end of the book:
"All the photographs in this book were taken in New York City in the homes and private spaces occupied by Saul Leiter and his subjects, between the late 1940s and the late 1960s. These images were scanned from original silver photographs printed by the artist.
(...) This book is dedicated to the women collaborators in its pages. Their intelligence, strength, and beauty are endlessly inspiring.
-- Margit Erb, director, Saul Leiter Foundation "
At the end of the book, an 8-page essay in Japanese and English by Michael Parillo, Saul Leiter Foundation.
The book is sold with a paperband / obi (see picture) and the usual little "reference" paper inserted in most Japanese books.
