Wonderful and somewhat obscure publication edited by Hata, which mixed historical material with contemporary practice- some of which has now reached classic status itself, but at the time would have been relatively unknown. Mixing photography, cinema, fashion and file art practice Mark Borthwick, Comme des Garcons, Shoji Ueda, Yayoi Kusama,Takashi Homma, Christian Boltanski, Andreas Gursky, Alexander Mcqueen, Tillmans, Christian Marclay, Jun Takahashi, Tezza, Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanabe, Juergen Teller, Katie Grand and countless other adorn the pages- delivering what is in retrospect some of their best and historically most important work.
