From the publisher:

Tsugaru: Poetry, Writings, Photography is a unique record of the landscapes, climate and customs of the Tsugaru region, three Tsugaru-born artists employing pen and camera to capture their childhood home. Comprising text by Yojiro Ishizaka, poems in Tsugaru dialect by Kyozo Takaki, and photographs by Ichiro Kojima, it also includes an outer box featuring a horse and cart illustration by Junichiro Sekino, a printmaker also Aomori-born, whose career spanned from the pre-war years through the post-war period. The book capitalizes on the distinctive qualities of the rotogravure printing of the time, and attempts to faithfully recreate the carefully crafted binding of the original as well.

The reprinted Tsugaru: Poetry, Writings, Photography is supplemented by this explanatory leaflet in English, not included in the first edition, in the hope that the inexhaustible delights of the book, and Kojima's work in general, will find an even greater audience.

Softcover, 28cm x 21cm, 90 pages.
