Text in Japanese and English. With a chronology. "Originally published on August 6, 1965 - the twentieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima - Kikuji Kawada's "The Map (Chizu)" is a true icon in the history of photographic publishing. Its status as the "ultimate photobook-as-object", coupled with its scarcity, combined to make it one of the most famous and sought-after photographic publications in existence. "The Map" combines powerful graphic design with a masterful photographic narrative exploring recent Japanese history - its imperialist past, western-influenced popular culture, and brutally violent clash with the United States. The photographs, many visible only with the opening of the multiple double-page gatefolds, capture on high-contrast film scenes of places and objects seared with the memory of horrific wartime events, from the atomic-bomb dome in Hiroshima to a trampled Japanese flag. Nazraeli Press in association with Getsuyosha Ltd. is proud to announce a facsimile reprint of this historic book. This edition is limited to only five hundred copies for distribution in the United States and Europe. Each copy is hand-numbered and signed by the artist, who also oversaw production of the project".
