Somewhere on the internets, I read that this was an amazing book, the latest by a contemporary photographer. Just from looking at the photos here, I love Rinko Kawauchi's sense of light and color. I like how the photos are presented with a white border, no text, and a dialogue between the two on facing pages. There is also an unusual binding style (Mandy Knapp, you may know about this), in which the bound pages are folded on the outer edges (making a double page) and the spine of these pages is not attached to the hard cover. The Goodreads description calls this "Japanese binding."
