About this Item: NY: Aperture, 2005., 2005. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Deluxe Signed Limited Edition, #109 of 500. This is the deluxe limited edition of "Kamaitachi" published by Aperture, New York in 2005 with a limitation of 500 this being number 109. The reproduction edition was limited to 1000 copies co-published by the Aperture Foundation, New York, and Seigensha Art Publishing, Kyoto, 2005. (The principal difference between the 500 copies of the Japanese edition and the 500 copies of the US edition is the exterior design. For the Aperture edition, the original slipcase designed by Ikko Tanaka was replaced with a deluxe clamshell box newly designed by Tadanori Yokoo and printed in five colors.) Measuring approximately 16" x 12.875" x 1.75" and containing 42 full page tritone photographs, the book is bound in silk-screen cloth covered boards with an acetate cover. The book is housed in a Tananori Yokoo designed deluxe clamshell box. The book is signed and numbered 109 of 500 by Eikoh Hosoe. Both the book and clamshell box are in FINE condition. From the publisher: "This sumptuous reprint of Hosoe Eikoh's 1966 classic, Kamaitachi, is an exquisite example of the photography book as a malleable form. This new incarnation of Hosoe's photography has resulted in a fresh creation, directly springing from the original body of work. Fine craftsmanship underscores the entire project. The trickster nature of Hosoe's photography demands such extremes of printing and bookmaking. Fans of Japanese culture, for a little more than the cost of the prix-fixe sushi dinner at New York restaurant Masa, you can own one of the classics of Japanese photography. More than 35 years after it first appeared, Kamaitachi, a long out-of-print masterwork by Japanese photographer Eikoh Hosoe, gets its first publication outside Japan. Not just a reprint but a recreation in collaboration with the photographer and in homage to the innovative original, this limited edition holds 42 black-and-white tritone images, each of which receives the scope of a gatefold. Slipcased and protected by a clamshell box, the book is not just a publication but an objet d'art in itself. Hosoe was known for pushing the boundaries of traditional photography through his interactions with important Japanese artists such as Butoh dancer Tasumi Hijikata and novelist Yukio Mishima. In Kamaitachi, he sought to recapture, with choreographic style, some of the lost landscapes and images of his childhood experience in the closing years of World War II.". Signed by Author(s).

About this Item: New York City, NY: Aperture Foundation, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 132 pages. Published in 2005. The artist/photographer's masterpiece, re-presented as an Artist Book. One of the greatest art photography books of our time. Limited "Clamshell Box" Edition of 500 numbered and signed copies. Precedes and should not be confused with the regular trade edition. The Limited Edition is now rare. An exquisite production by Eikoh Hosoe, Ikko Tanaka, and Tadanori Yokoo: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial cloth boards with blue titles on spine, as issued. Photographs by Eikoh Hosoe. Choreography by Tatsumi Hijikata. Introduction by Shuzo Takiguchi. Poem by Toyoichiro Miyoshi. Clamshell box design by Tadanori Yokoo, the greatest graphic artist/designer of our time. In publisher's original shrinkwrap. Printed on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper in Tokyo, Japan to the highest standards. In pristine glassine DJ with blue titles on the cover, as issued. Re-presents, in a stunning Limited Edition format, Eikoh Hosoe's "Kamaitachi". The artist/photographer's masterpiece, re-imagined for our time: The book as beautiful object. Originally published in 1969, it has never before been available outside Japan and has been out-of-print for more than 40 years. "Each of the pages is printed as an individual gatefold, each of which opens to reveal a single, stunning black-and-white image. The exterior of each gatefold is printed in a spectacular azure blue. The effect of opening the book is of stepping into an unknown landscape of theater and baroque sensuality. A singular collaboration between Eikoh Hosoe and the founder of Butoh Dance, Tatsumi Hijikata: In 1965, Hosoe and Hijikata visited a small farming village in Northern Japan. Drawing in the villagers as performers and using the rice fields and rural landscape as a theatrical set for an improvisational Butoh performance, Hosoe photographed Hijikata's spontaneous interactions with the landscape and with the people they encountered. Hosoe has called the project 'a subjective documentary', an investigation of tradition and an exploration both personal and symbolic of the convulsions of Japanese society. It was inspired by the legend of the Kamaitachi, a weasel-like demon who haunts the rice fields and slashes those who encounter him" (Publisher's blurb). Hosoe called "Kamaitachi" a subjective documentary because it is his most personal work, a poignant attempt to recapture his wartime childhood in a visual (rather than narrative) way, by capturing Hijikata's choreographic flourish and grace in panoramic landscapes. An absolute "must-have" title for Eikoh Hosoe collectors. This copy is one of the Limited "Clamshell Box" Edition, indicated as such on the Front Limitation Slip, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in azure-blue ink-pen by Eikoh Hosoe. Hosoe also stamped it with his red "chop". This title is a great art photography book. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: The clamshell box of many copies was very badly damaged in transit because of poor packing on the publisher's part, resulting in splits at the edges, bumps, and crushed corners. The edition that was simultaneously released in Japan does not come in Tadanori Yokoo's clamshell box, but in a simple slipcase. Copies of the 1969 original now command more than $8000. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. 40 tritone plates. "Ba Ra Kei" and "Kamaitachi" were selected as two of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest artist/photographers of the 20th century. A flawless collectible copy.
