A collection of curious and stimulating images housed in a charming modernist binding and slipcase make up this wonderful 1930s Japanese study of the avant-garde and the bizarre. Arranged thematically the book is filled with photographs of nudes, cultural practise, showgirls, dance, sports, architecture, military, the avant-garde, fashion, and more, from Josephine Baker to the Bauhaus.
Minor wear to cloth with some rubbing starting at the upper joint. A few touches of foxing to plates intermittently throughout but overall clean and bright. Very small chip to tail fore-edge corner of page 33/4. Japanese bookseller label to rear free endpaper. Slipcase is bright, some wear to the edges and corners. Very Good Condition.
