Nihon meishoden (Famous Artisans of Japan)
- Nihon meishoden (Famous Artisans of Japan)
Photobook. First edition. Signed copy.
- Made in: Kyoto-fu
Superb portraits of sixteen major figures from the world of literature (Kawabata Yasunari), woodcut art (Munakata Shiko), acting (Mizutani Yaeko), pottery (Hamada Shoji), go (Sakata Eio), as well as the heart-surgeon Sagakibara Shigeru - to name just a few. All of them were survivors, the old guard of Japan - in a positive sense. The characters are full of a sense of their own achievement and they were clearly comfortable with Domon's presence. Book-design by Tanaka Ikko. Only 2 copies in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
