Remarques & avis / Review — The gems of Asahi Camera's Japanese art photographic world for 1959-1960 — Ihei KIMURA, Eikoh HOSOE, Ken DOMON, Yasuhiro ISHIMOTO, Ikko NARAHARA, Masatoshi NAITO, Shigeichi NAGANO, Masaya NAKAMURA, etc. — selected by Nobuo INA & Tsutomu WATANABE, in a fine, well-crafted volume with outstanding inking / printing (gravure) and paper. A section dedicated to contemporary events, due to the desastrous typhoon that occured then, the wedding of the Japanese crown prince Akihito (reigning Emperor Heisei), and a funnier part to conclude and counterbalance the whole. A great issue.

Les perles du monde photographique japonais d'Asahi Camera pour 1959-1960 — KIMURA Ihei, HOSOE Eikoh, DOMON Ken, ISHIMOTO Yasuhiro, NARAHARA Ikko, NAITO Masatoshi, NAGANO Shigeichi, NAKAMURA Masaya, etc. — sélectionné par INA Nobuo & WATANABE Tsutomu, dans un beau volume bien fini, avec impression / encrage (héliogravure) et papier remarquables. Une section consacrée aux événements d'actualité, du fait du typhon désastreux qui sévit alors, le mariage du prince de la couronne Akihito (Empereur régnant Heisei), et une section plus humoristique pour conclure et contre-balancer le tout. Superbe numéro.
