Living Hiroshima
Hiroshima Tourist Association Press, Hiroshima, Japan 1949 - First Edition. White paper over boards hardcover. Good plus condition. Text entirely in English. Text by Kenzo Nakajima and Tadao Yamamuro. Art by Hiromu Hara and Seiichi Tagawa. Photographs by Ihei Kimura, Shunkichi Kikuchi, Minoru Ohki and Takashi Asano. Covers show discolouration and are quite soiled. Both boards warped, mainly to the side edge as are most of the pages. The book shows a couple of foxing spots here and there but is mainly free from foxing. Most pages show a dampstain along the top and side edge of pages. Published just 4 years after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima city, this book is a documentation of the rebuilding of the city. A book quite obviously produced to show the rest of the world that although Hiroshima was very much destroyed the spirit of the people was not. A very important Hiroshima document. Contact for further images. Language: eng [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
