other reviews [here and here]

content [Embedded journalism avant la lettre. Very cinematographic, black and white, 100 pages. Images made in the 1950’s where a team of the police is in search of a murderer.  We see images of this research and at the same time we get a view on Tokyo.  One negative point: sometimes the book suffers from not enough ‘kill your darlings’ – but it doesn’t spoil the fun. Traditional yet lovely storytelling, like watching an old movie!

book [wonderfully printed on matte paper, nice and sensitive cover, takes you into another world – a jewel]

score [4/5]
