Sanrizuka 1969–1971.

Tokyo: Nora-sha, 1971. First Edition. Small quarto. SIGNED by Kazuo Kitai. A documentation of the Sanrizuka farmers' opposition and resistance to the government's plan to build Narita airport. Perhaps the most powerful and fully-realized production of all the Japanese protest books on this subject. Although not an official member of Provoke, Kitai was a pioneer in the photographic style championed by the group. His first book, Resistance, published in 1965, was greatly admired by Daido Moriyama and Takuma Nakahira. (Parr / Badger, v3, 56). Rubbed—somewhat heavily—along the edges of the covers and creased a bit at the spine, else very good in photo-illustrated wrappers in a very good example of the original publisher's slipcase, itself rubbed along the spine label and age-toned.
