Architectural Apocalypse

Tokyo: Heibonsha, 1988. First edition (stated), though in what appears to be a second-state obi advertising Miyamoto's receipt of the Kimura Ihei Award. 4to. Illustrated boards with black metal title-card mounted on front; obi; publisher's fitted vinyl sleeve. 121pp.; b&w plates. Very good indeed, with light shelfwear, and some very minor damp rippling to the fore-edge of a few leaves at both front and rear. Obi slightly rubbed, but complete and with no tears. Vinyl sleeve stretched and rather warped; for presentation, we have fitted the book with a stiff mylar jacket, but will include the original as well.

First book by the noted Japanese photographer Ryuji Miyamoto (b. 1947); striking and exquisitely printed photographs of twentieth-century architectural ruins, with an essay in both Japanese and English by architect Arata Isozaki. Republished by Heibonsha in 2003 in an oblong format and with differently sequenced images.
