"In this calm yet emotionally charged photographic narrative, Japanese artist Mayumi Lake traces her family history back some 60 years and revisits her childhood fantasy of bringing back her grandfathers, both of whom were killed in combat during World War Two. Rural landscapes evoke memories of battlefields and female portraits pay tribute to those who suffered the loss of their loved ones" (Publisher's blurb). A "must-have" title for Mayumi Lake collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such in pencil on the Back Limitation Page. It comes with an original print that is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on verso by Mayumi Lake. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. 6 color plates, 1 original print. One of the most brilliant living American artist/photographers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1590052544. $100.00
