A Selection of Japanese Photobooks (Maggs Bros Ltd, 2009)

The public profile of the Japanese photobook has recently boomed. It has been central to the development of Japanese photography, particularly in its postwar phase.

So I was pleased to find a digital catalogue by Maggs Bros Ltd which presents a selection of Japanese Photobooks (you find a download link at the buttom of the page).

In the following, some sample pages from this catalogue. Stay tuned!
