Twelve breathtaking photographs of individual snowflakes (or 'letters sent from heaven', as Ukichiro Nakaya described them) in a pitch-perfect follow-up to his earlier monograph, 'Yuki Sakura' " (Publisher's blurb). This is surely one of the most austerely beautiful One Picture Books ever, an absolute "must-have" title for Risaku Suzuki collectors. This copy is numbered in pencil on the Back Limitation Page.
