Notes: Jointly bound by Lester Capon (upper front and lower back boards) and Peter M. Jack (lower front and upper back boards) in 2010 and signed on the inside front cover by both binders. Colophon: "5 days walking the streets of Tokyo, taking photographs of posters, advertisements, street signs, manhole covers, stickers, wall graffitis, shop windows, neon signs, packaging graphics. . . With our umbrella, expecting rain which never came". Hand-made paper folded over the fore-edge Japanese style. In a red drop-back box with the title on black leather on the spine. Black and red screen printed and manipulated photographs on traditional Korean paper. The structure of the binding was very much dictated by the content which consists of images printed on lightweight handmade paper sheets folded at the fore-edge and open at the spine, which is to the right in the Japanese manner. The boards are of sheet aluminium for rigidity without thickness, lined either side with paper. Only the front board is hinged as the book block needs the support of a rigid back board.
