About This Item

New York: Crown Publishers, Inc, 1964. A near-fine copy in a near-fine jacket, some modest spotting along upper sheet edges not visible on the pages, jacket with a few light spots of wear at the extremities, but generally bright, well preserved and clean. Folio (13.5 x 10 inches). 184 pages. Cloth; dust jacket (the photo shows mylar protective reflection). First edition. Introduction by Maurice Pinguet. One of Klein's four "city: books, a stunningly and exuberantly designed book carrying on the model Klein had devised in his 'Life is Good and Good for You in New York': powerful full bleed images, one after the other, relentless showing the vitality of Tokyo. Pinguet compares the book to Hokusai, "a sudden throng of images, faces, streets, crowds, and attitudes, intense and cinfused, where the past merges with the future in an uproar of appearances." An unusually fresh and bright copy.
