The publication is the 2018 renewed edition of Daido Moriyama's first photobook, which had been first published in 1963.

The book also includes Moriyama's shots of dwarf dancers, strip clubs, street performers, fetuses and other motifs. The 2018 edition is also the first to feature English translations of Shuji Terayama's writings. The book is one of 700 copies, numbered and signed by the artist.
