Ryuijie's first book...."Photographs - Ryuijie", Signed by the artist, 1991
Books are new, but are what I call blems. Somewhere in the printing process a small amount of drying ink was transferred to the covers. Internal pages are bright, clean, and crisp.
First edition, introduction by Josephus Daniels. Published by Fresh Silver, Carmel, California, 1991. 100 pp. Small oblong quarto, 8"x9 1/2", soft cover.
The forty-five full-page varnished plates were printed by the Blake Printery in San Luis Obispo, California.
Ryuijie's work is in the collection of the Getty Museum and has been exhibited in numerous worldwide galleries and published in two subsequent books and many contemporary photography magazines.
