Kawada’s The Map / Chizu is the most famous and sought after book in the history of Japanese photography and has seen numerous editions since its original publication in 1965. However, this iconic volume has only even been seen in the form which emerged out of Kawada’s collaboration with the noted graphic designer Kohei Sugiura. This MACK version is a facsimile of the original two-volume maquette, a unique object discovered in the holdings of The New York Public Library, and which is the form of the book first settled on and designed by the photographer himself. A revelation in its own right, this edition includes an accompanying bilingual booklet featuring new scholarship by Joshua Chuang and Miyuki Hinton, together with an extended interview with the artist, detailing the evolution of one of the greatest photobooks ever made.

Two hardback books, each with a jacket, plus one paperback booklet with leporello fold. Housed in a buckram bound hardback slipcase, protected in a printed cardboard mailer
