Jinkotsu Toyomi No Shinkosei
, 1932. 1932. NAKAGAWA, Shuzo. Jinkotsu Toyomi No Shinkosei [New Compositions of Beauty of Human Anatomy]. Title, 2 pp. introduction, followed by 12 tipped-in photographs each with facing text beginning with a geometric initial. Folio, loose leaves laid into the publisher's illustrated box featuring a naked women leaping over a blue volvelle stamped in gilt, spine stamped in gilt, part of cover and rear of box covered in silver and black checkered pattern in a new yellow cloth folding box. Tokyo, 1932.A rare and unusual Japanese photobook published between the wars. It is a celebration of the female form, as each photo depicts a young subject posed to mimic a geometrical form that appears on the facing page along with letterpress descriptions. The work is reminiscent of Karel Teige and Karel Paspa's landmark Czech photobook, ABECEDA. A very rare book, with no copies recorded on Worldcat. Some light foxing, covers a little chipped, but overall an exceptional copy.
