Extra shipping charges may apply.**Extra shipping may apply for international orders** From the publisher: "In the fall of 1990, Keizo Kitajima received a commission from Japan's Asahi Shimbun newspaper to visit the Soviet Union, the opportunity to spend a year documenting both people and places in what was then a monolithic entity. 15 republics, 11 time zones, and thousands of miles spanning the two-the task was daunting in the very least. Having spent several years based in West Berlin, the Iron Curtain was a looming presence and Kitajima had often contemplated turning his lens towards the Soviet regime although the difficulties associated therein-censorship, freedom of access, and overwhelming bureaucracy-seemed insurmountable. And so it was, with a mix of anticipation and trepidation, that Kitajima entered the USSR in November 1990 to capture a moment in time where the winds of change roared at a howling pace." Near fine copy in fine case; soiling to boards with some ink from slipcase rubbing off on spine of boards; else excellent condition; pages are bright and free of marks and creases; binding is square and tight; book and booklet are protected by foam padding; signed by artist on half-title page.
