The book documenting Keishi Ose's trip to the Soviet Union in 1927, it is an exploration of the new Soviet state. The outstanding design of the book and slipcase, fusing Russian and Japanese avant-garde elements, is by Onichi Koshiro (1891-1955). The binding and book design by Onchi is remarkable, capturing the constructivist aesthetic very effectively.  Although Onchi later became known as an important print-maker and photographer, he initially supported himself as a book designer. A compelling symbiosis of Japanese book design and Russian constructivism. 

Very fine copy.
