Availability: Out of stock

Katsuhisa OGAWA, photographer. "First Love." Japan: Nobel Shobo, 1970, First Edition, HB, dj, photo-decorated slipcase, 30 cm x 23 cm, 120 pp, 94 gravure photos.

Rare. Though the subtitle has made this book seem scandalous, the photography is gorgeous - romantic and impressionistic, steeped with nostalgia and melancholy. The printing is beautiful as well, similar to the best 1960s era Japanese gravure photobooks, full of painterly touches, chiaroscuro lighting and empty spaces.

Condition: Book is Very Good, slipcase has rubbing.
