Softcover with dustjacket, obi-band, with publishers inserts. First edition, printrun 4000 (according to Rinko Kawauchi), signed.

"Carps, clouds, a curtain, a tire, fried eggs, grandfather, a butterfly. These are the details of the everyday life that are too easily missed. Seen through the lens of Kawauchi's camera, however, the ordinary shines with bejeweled patterns of light; even an ant transforms into a statement of style. At the same time, the carcass of a dove proclaims the book's theme of the terror that exists next door to everyday beauty. This thoughtful debut photobook won awards for its graceful contemplation of mortality."
