Remarques & avis / ReviewThe country of Shinano is the old name of one of Japan's regions which now overlies Nagano prefecture, where Kinsuke SHIMADA leads us along seasons, mountains and remote villages where time seems to have stopped. An absolutely fabulous large-sized photography book, fine paper and excellent printing, scarce in such a fine state and complete of its two boxes.

Le pays de Shinano est l'ancien nom d'une région du Japon qui recouvre à présent la préfecture de Nagano, où SHIMADA Kinsuke nous mène selon saisons, montagnes et villages reculés où le temps semble s'être arrêté. Un livre de photographie grand format absolument fabuleux, beau papier et excellente impression, rare dans un si bel état et complet de ses deux emboitages.
