We were very grateful to Sebastiaan Hanekroot at Colour & Books for so inventively executing the production of our recent 10×10 Japanese Photobooks publication. Sebastian’s recent blog post, A Case in Binding, discusses the production challenges in realizing the elaborate French fold binding and associated gatefolds that designer Sybren Kuiper conceived for our book.
Sebastiaan’s ability to overcome what other book producers would see as obstacles, makes him stand out in the field.

Dankjewel Sebastiaan for such amazing work!

Saturday, November 22, 2014

Photo books are now recognized as a separate art form, a subgenre of the larger universe of photography, and their importance has prompted a recent spate of books about photo books. 10×10 Japanese Photobooks” (10×10 Photobooks, 248 pages, $125) 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 present book is the second in the “10×10” series; it follows one on America photo books and more are planned.

—Mr. Meyers writes on photography for The Wall Street Journal.

10×10 was honored to publish Akira Hasegawa’s (photo editor of Fukase’s Ravens) essay on Japanese Photography in its most recent publication: 10×10 Japanese Photobooks.

Sadly, Hasegawa-san passed away shortly after submitting his essay. At a memorial ceremony at the famed photobook cafe/restaurant Megutama in Tokyo the other day, Atsushi Fujiwara shared Hasegawa’s essay in the recent 10×10 Japanese Photobooks publication with photo critic Kotaro Iizawa, Shashin-Jidai Editior in Chief Suei-san and Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography Curator Ryuichi Kaneko.

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.

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.
