Praise for 10×10 Japanese Photobooks:

The Wall Street Journal
10×10 Japanese Photobooks is a sushi counter of information about the Japanese photo books published in the last 60 years: 20 international specialists each highlight 10 titles, one of which is then given an expanded treatment—including enough pictures to give a sense of what the work is actually like. Photo books have been an important aspect of Japanese culture since the end of World War II, documenting the country’s seismic social transformations, and most of the country’s best known photographers— Daido Moriyama, Nobuyoshi Araki, Eikoh Hosoe, Hiroshi Sugimoto —are represented. The advantage of this extensive listing is that many little known artists are also on view.”

The New Yorker Magazine 
10×10 was inspired in part by lack of direct access for the general public to many of these books, some of which were published decades ago in limited editions.”

About the New 10×10 Japanese Photobooks Publication

Printed in a limited numbered edition of 400, this “book on books” presents selections by twenty photobook specialists.

As a catalog associated with the traveling 10×10 Japanese Reading Room and Online space, the book offers an in-depth visual investigation of twenty highlighted books – one from each specialist’s selection of ten books – and a visual appendix that documents all 200 Japanese photobooks.

Designed by the Dutch graphic design studio SYB (designer of Viviane Sassen’s Flamboya and Carolyn Drake’s Two Rivers) with lithography and technical supervision by Colour & Books, 10×10 Japanese Photobooks lavishly presents the highlighted books across multiple full-page wrap-around spreads with selector commentaries. Texts include the last essay by the late Akira Hasegawa (photo editor of Masahisa Fukase’s Ravens), an interview by writer Dan Abbe with photographer and Asphalt editor Atsushi Fujiwara, and an historical overview by photo-eye book specialist Eric Miles.
