The third of William Klein's iconic original four city books: New York (1956), Rome (1959), Moscow (1964), and Tokyo (1964). He has since added Torino '90 (1990) and Paris (2003.) As David Campany has written: "William Klein's lasting legacy to photography will be his four city books... Tokyo is my favourite, not least because it sees Klein returning to the city whose photographic culture he helped to revolutionize. ..After New York and Rome Klein increased his page size so that when you open up the full-bleed double spreads of Tokyo they are more than half a metre wide. With those dense, complex compositions in your lap you feel like you're up close to a huge mural, not a page. This is where Klein is at his best, achieving the most powerful effects with the most unlikely material. ...It's so rich, so relentlessly inventive that I can never remember it all and find myself constantly surprised." Photographs and notes on the plates by William Klein; preface by Maurice Pinguet. 184 pages; 157 full-page and full-spread gravure-printed b/w plates; 10.25 x 14 inches.
