This book features “selections from the collection the Museum of Modern Art, New York” for the showing at the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo Japan.
The front cover is holding to the first page but at that point is is about 3/4 torn away at the spine. The spine paper end is worn and mostly pulled back from base. The book will be sent with clips on the spine to prevent further tearing. The back cover is unaffected as is the rest of the book.
We have taken the pictures with the clips in place as well to prevent damage.
The bulk of the book are nicely done Black and White close up photos of everything to do with Design. Obviously this was available only in Japan and it is a rare book even there.
Back section is partly in Japanese but has dates of manufacture and designers/companies for easy identification.
