About This Item

Kyoto: Korinsha Press, 1998. First edition. Laminated Boards. Near Fine. 4to (29cm). Photographically illustrated paper on laminated thick boards. Full bleed colour photographic images on paper over thick laminated card pages. Unpaginated. Signed by Homma to inner rear pastedown in pen. With the accompanying 20p. loose leaf pamphlet leaflet in the fluorescent green enclosed with text in Japanese and English, including two essays, by architect Momoyo Kajima, 'Ways of Looking at the Suburban Landscape,' and 'In the very fact of an intensity without having "meaning"', by sociologist Shinji Miyadai. Images from the endless sprawl of Tokyo's suburbs, capturing well manicured lawns, bright pastel shades and dreamy blue skies. Only occasionally does the imagery veer off into less certain, bleaker shades. Parr & Badger, The Photobook, A History, Vol 2. A slight crease mark to spine, some light shelfwear to lower edges of boards, otherwise very sound. SCARCE as a signed copy.
