Artists' Books
Nakazora = 中空
Masao Yamamoto, Reiko Nakajima
Art Library Rare Books Collection: TR 655 .Y356185 2001 box 20.1

"Masao Yamamoto has designed a scroll measuring over eighteen feet long, printed in process color on uncoated Japanese stock. The timelessness of Yamamoto's imagery is beautifully echoed in scroll format. A striking marriage of traditional and hi-tech materials and production techniques, Nakazora redefines the term 'artists' book'"--Publisher's blurb.
