Illustrated throughout in black-and-white by Ishimoto, Japanese and English texts by Tange, beige endpapers, blue cloth boards printed in white with acetate cover, cardboard slipcase with illustrated adhered label with small piece missing on spine. Condition: Very Good. Born in San Francisco in 1921, Yasuhiro Ishimoto was raised in Japan and then attended the Chicago Institute of Design, where he studied photography under Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind. This was where Ishimoto was primarily interested by the New Bauhaus. In 1953 for the first time he visited the Katsura Imperial Villa, an extensive 16th century compound in Kyoto valued as a cultural treasure of Japan, whose integration of architecture and gardens encapsulates the zenith of Japanese aesthetics. Ishimoto soon begun a photographic project on this subject, with this book published as a result. (Description from Kaneko & Vartanian - Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and '70s, page 40.)
