The first publication of Eikoh Hosoe. We can feel his devotion for surrealism and his love for the dance expression. This book is very important and novator cause of the graphism of the book and the contrast between the strong gravure and the powerfull colors of the text pages. Also when the book is fully open we can see a yellow frame all around the pictures due to the yellow cardboard. After seeing that book Van der Elsken was so impressed cause of the pictures and the quality of the high printing than he asked Hosoe to show him his printer. Some years later sweet life will be publish with the same gravure type.
