In every aspect a valuable document on the interaction between Western and Japanese art and architecture. A few months after the second Congrès Internationaux d’Architecture Moderne (CIAM) in Frankfurt in 1929, this Japanese edition, which is largely identical to the German edition, was published almost simultaneously. The cover design is particularly interesting, combining parts of the design of the German edition with Japanese typography. The design of the German edition was created by Hans Leistikow.
Very well preserved, unrestored copy.
