Tokyo. Photographs and brief text by William Klein. Delpire, Paris, 1964. 184 pp. Folio. First edition. Hardbound, glossy boards.
Klein’s fourth ‘city’ book. “Like Hokusai, William Klein has created a Manga—a sudden throng of images, faces, streets, crowds, and attitudes, intense and confused, where the past merges with the future in an uproar of appearances…The first thing to understand is that this teeming madhouse is Tokyo—contradictory and confused, makeshift and planless, frenetic and discordant, Eastern and Western.”—from Maurice Pinguet’s preface to the American edition
