    Beautifully designed by Hara Hiromu this Asahi Camera Supplement spans Kimura's entire life. The anthology contains 196 images (one per page) but although very few of them had not been published before, in terms of printing this work represents a considerable improvement on previous efforts. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
