"In the 1960's there was an ever larger public for photography and the nude became a fashionable genre. In Young Lady Nude, Susumu Matsushima produced a large-size portfolio containing thirty-six photos of young women unashamedly posing nude. The compositions - such as that of a model lying on the ground amid scattered playing cards - were always inventive, and the technical quality of the prints is remarkable, as is the sharpness of detail." --Bertolotti, Books of Nudes, p. 182.

Condition: Very Good, a rarely seen example with the outer cardboard slipcase. Also the inner obi band around the prints is still present.
