The Windows Book

Katsuhiko Shiraishi


Edition : First / Tokyo / Tosoh / 1982 / Hardcover. / Near Fine / VG+
4to. 196pp. Blue boards in dustwrap and card slipcase. Numerous Black & White and Colour plates. Text in Japanese.

In some respects the runt of the litter in the Tosoh catalogue (The Interior Book, Living Interiors). The topic is as you would imagine – windows. It’s not as strong as the other books in the series, but it does still have some really great work, plus – a fantastically banal section on curtains, which is half incredible and half so dull it’s amazing that somebody decided to immortalise it in paper form. I like it.
