    New catalogue including Japanese photo books online

    I hope this is not considered phishing :o but the bookshop I work for has just released a new catalogue, which has a number of fine Japanese photography books for sale (many signed by the photographers). You can view the descriptions online at www.rarebook.com/cat37/p.htm & www.rarebook.com/cat37/p2.htm.

    Thanks for posting the links, you aren't trying to sell to us rather giving us information, which we probably would never find otherwise. I had a look and its interesting, out of my price league for that wonderful album

    One comment I'd make is there are a lot of Photographs for sale but almost no images.

    There are some really terrific items listed here! More terrific, mostly, than my wallet

    I have made some excellent finds and purchases by just getting lucky here in the states, such as a Moriyama "Farewell Photography" (the 2005 reprint) which I found just a couple of weeks back, still in the shrinkwrap and selling at retail for a small fraction of the typical secondhand prices... I also found a copy of the Szarkowski-curated catalog for the 1970's MOMA "Contemporary Japanese Photography" show and paid only a small fistful of bucks for it. Like new.

    When I was at Moriyama et al's PlaceM recently, I started counting up the Japanese photo books with ENGLISH titles -- they are a significant majority! This is common for many Japanese books, but really prevalent for photo books. Wonder why that is. Few are really known outside Japan.
