Oe, Kenzaburo. KENZABURO OE: SOUVENIR COLOR PHOTOGRAPH. Tokyo, Japan: Kodansha International, 1995. Other. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. As New.

Rare Kenzaburo Oe collectible item. A pristine Souvenir Color Photograph of the author delivering a speech, double-signed by Kenzaburo Oe. The print measures 8.5 X 5.5 inches. It is laid into a protective plastic sheet that has the publisher's paper board backing. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Kenzaburo Oe's Souvenir Color Photograph. A lovely memento-image of the Nobel Prize Laureate. Kenzaburo Oe is that rare writer: A genius of language and form, a master storyteller whose themes and concerns are all deeply rooted in his personal experience, and just as important, a self-deprecating, reserved, yet irresistibly powerful voice. He is "The Other" Japanese writer of our time, that is, the exact opposite of and antithetical contrast to Yukio Mishima, particularly the latter's self-aggrandizing, ostentatious, and egotistical personality (there are no other words, and they in no way diminish Mishima's greatness). An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for Kenzaburo Oe collectors. This Souvenir Color Photograph is very prominently and beautifully signed (in both Japanese characters and Roman alphabet) in black ink-pen on recto by Kenzaburo Oe. It is signed directly on the print itself, not on a tipped-in page. As far as we know, this is the only such signed color photograph available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed item thus. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1994. One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine item. (SEE ALSO OTHER KENZABURO OE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $80.00
