About this Item

KITASONO Katue, poet. SUEMATSU Masaki, artist. MAHIRU NO REMON. Tokyo, Shoshinsha, 1954. Folio, 32.0 x 24.5 cm. One of 30 deluxe copies (#9) of a total edition of 330 copies. Signed in bold calligraphy by Kitasono. Has 3 full page color prints by Suematsu Masaki (1908-97). An example of Kitasono's "plastic poetry". The slipcase, hardcover, the typography, all combine as a fluid visual container for Kitasono's brilliant poems. There is not space here to even begin to describe Kitasono's importance to world art and literature. I would refer you to the several works of John Solt, both translations and critical essays, as well as several exhibitions dedicated to Kitasono mounted here and in Europe, as well. Fine condition, complete as issued. Bookseller Inventory # 88409
