    There is an excellent exhibit at the UM Museum of Art's Offsite gallery featuring about 75 of Michael Kenna's fabulous images of Ford's River Rouge plant. Wonderful Industrial landscapes, etc. More info on my blog here:

    If you are going to be anywhere near Ann Arbor, MI, stop in and see the show, which ends Jan. 14.

    Most likely from dealers or galleries. It has been out of print for a while and will be very expensive. I got a copy a few years ago for $300.

    You might try Michael Kenna's main gallery, the Stephen Wirtz Gallery - http://www.wirtzgallery.com. They may be able to help. I also know someone who bought several copies without the dustjacket if interested. It will still be quite expensive. PD
