Remarques & avis / Review — The best selection of Ihei KIMURA's works, that spans from 1932 to 1970: a fabulous gallery of monochrome portraits of famous kabuki actors, renowned craftsmen & writers (Naoya SHIGA, Taikan YOKOYAMA, Kafu NAGAI, Junichiro TANIZAKI, etc.), villagers (Akita, Okinawa, fishermen) and from his journeys abroad (China, Europe), in almost 200 plates, in an finely crafted and printed volume.
