This Special issue of Asahi Graph commemorates the 100th anniversary of the invention of heliography by Joseph Niepce. A specially commissioned commemorative medal adorns the front cover followed by an overview of photography from the early 1850s to pictorialist trends of the 1920s. The last 14pp. provide a visual record of the festivities that lasted for a week and showed unprecedented interest and enthusiasm: Four photographic exhibitions were held in Tokyo alone, banquets were held with over three hundred photographers attending, there were competitions, lectures, and a host of other ceremonies. Photography was well on the way to becoming a mass event. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
