Kawada’s The Map / Chizu is the most famous and sought after book in the history of Japanese photography.
Since its original publication in August 1965 Chizu has seen numerous editions.
This version is an exquisite facsimile of the rarest version of the book: Kikuji Kawada’s unique, handmade, two-volume maquette that presents a notably different physicality than that of the published edition.
The publication includes an accompanying bilingual booklet featuring new scholarship, together with an extended interview with the artist, detailing the evolution of one of the greatest photobooks ever made.
