Photography magazine, issue nos.1, 17, 144 & 283. Numerous photographic illustrations. Folio. Original printed wrappers.
- Published in: Tokyo-to
An important weekly propaganda magazine that was widely distributed through neighbourhood organizations and ran to 375 issues until July 11th, 1945. Each issue focussed on a different subject - mostly war-related - ranging from civil defence, the war-time economy, naval cadet training, Red Cross, air-force etc. Possibly as a confidence boosting measure, the magazine’s size was doubled to A3 in March 1944, while at the same time reducing the number of pages. This present issue no. 1 contains important contributions by Kimura Ihei, no. 17 contains a long feature by Domon Ken on the training of nurses in the Red Cross. Issue no. 144 contains work by Nagata Isshu. Other illustrations were collected from a wide variety of military and civil sources. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
