Book Review:

“Japan: A Nisei’s First Encounter” is an exquisite little handstitched volume reproducing 32 photos from the trip. Each photo evokes something essentially Japanese — a rustic water basin, costumed sculpture, raked gravel, carp, a still life with calligraphy brushes. His serene image, “Torii Gate at Miya-Jima” is shown here.”

—Mary Abbe, Arts Editor, Minneapolis Star Tribune
