    This comparatively sparse publication shows Kitai's work in a new light. All of the images in this book were taken during the early 1970s and many had previously been published in 'Mura e'. The new layout, however, contributes to a substantially different atmosphere, it has a degree of concentration that highlights the emotional content of Kitai's formative years of travel. Includes several images of China. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
