This is the only publication by the famous avant-garde society in Fukuoka Irf, founded in Fukuoka in 1939 by four local photographers, namely Takahashi Wataru (1900-1944), Tanaka Zentoku (1903-1963), Konomi Giichiro (1896-1951), and Hisano Hisashi (1903-1946), the craftsman Koike Iwataro (1913-1992), and the Yoga painter Ito Kenshi (1907-1978). The name of the society is a charming pun on the Japanese word for 'old' furui written back to front, thus implying the opposite. The present is the club's only publication produced on the occasion of visits by Sakata Minoru, Koishi Kiyoshi, and Shimozato Yoshio to the club. This society was clearly not in line with the prevailing spirit of the times and would have been disbanded shortly after the publication in May 1940. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
