This is Hosoe Eikoh's first book, and a superb achievement at that. Poems by Taro Yamamoto and essay by Ed van der Elsken. Domon Ken commented on the book as follows: “It is chock-full with the passion of youth - so much so it suggests the impossibility of this artist, who is doomed to grow older day by day, ever producing again a similar series or type of work, no matter how much he might try.” (Comments in English text brochure). Well this was not quite true, but true enough. Plate one woman holding a fish, plate two of girl with flower in her mouth (double-page), bum, hand and apple. Female head under arm. Beautifully designed with colour borders to some of the images. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
