Remarques & avis / Review — One of Katsuji FUKUDA's postwar marvels of color & monochrome nude photographs. Advanced avant-garde color experiments in lightling, framing and composition. Entails a great series of still-lifes depicting faces and bodies, which would inspire ARAKI for his own. A superb, highly collectable photobook.

Divers / Misc. — Color fixation wasn't top-notch at the time: all copies suffer from some ink transfer. 2nd printing in Showa 29 (1954).
