See item 40 in the catalogue. This important amateur magazine was founded by Takakuwa Katsuo together with Miyake Kokki, author of the successful primer 'Shashin no utsushikata' [How to take photographs] published by the forerunner of Ars (Oranda Shobo) in 1916. This magazine set the pattern for all subsequent pre-war amateur magazines. Due to the cost of reproduction, photographic plates are limited to 2-4 plates in the early issues. There is a rich mix of essays on both the technical and aesthetic aspects of photography, some of them with slightly inferior photographic illustrations. There is also useful information on exhibitions and competitions, supply shops, trends abroad, as well as travel essays. Commencing with vol. III, no. 1 the magazine is published in a larger format. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder)
