FRANK, Robert (né en 1924). The Lines of My Hand. Tokyo: Kazuhiko Motomura pour Yugensha, 1972.
In-4 (343 x 252 mm). Illustré de monochromes reproduisant des photographies de Robert Frank. Reliure de l'éditeur en toile noire, étui orné d'un monochrome, emballage original de l'éditeur.
Tirage non spécifié, étui orné du monochrome "New York City, 1948", avec la brochure volante en japonais avec texte et images imprimés en blanc. Le premier livre né de la collaboration entre Robert Frank et Kazuhiko Motomura, avec la mise en page par Kohei Sugiura. "Given the bonus of Sugiura's design talents and the sheer appropriateness of Frank's vision to the Japanese treatment, he might have been the first photographer to gain membership to Provoke had he not retired. The Motumura edition of the Lines is certainly one of the photobooks most sought by collectors" (Parr-Badger I, p. 261).
