The 1960s and 70s were an important era for photobooks as a mode of expression in Japan. Photographs were shown in printed book format instead of as individual photographic print which is a common practice today. The photobook has been central to the development of Japanese photography, particularly in its postwar phase. In this publication, 40 photobooks from the 1960s and 70s were selected to introduce a previously invisible history. Each book is accompanied by an in-depth explanatory text, and information such as names of editors, publishers and art directors.
