    This is the only large-format photography book Miki Jun published during his life-time. It is a superb record of Brazil during the 60s. Dark photogravures capture the amazing energy of the people and the optimism of the country. Parts of the new capital of Brasilia had just been built by Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa and their grand architectural vision is documented in a series of impressive black-white images. Kenko-sha's gravure printing is superb as always. Only one copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
