The first major japanese book to tackle the horrors of Hiroshima.

"Along with Kikuji Kawada's Chizu (The Map), Shomei Tomatsu's Nagasaki 11:02, and Domon's 1961 collaboration with Tomatsu, Hiroshima-Nagasaki Document 1961, this book remains one of the most important photographic memorials to the destruction wrought by the dropping of two atomic bombs on Japan by the U.S."--Photo-eye

"Fine gravure printing and the cover by Joan Miro seem designed to provide an international focus and lend a dignity to the horrors that are unflinchingly confronted within. The events are recorded in a careful and respectful way, as if the act of making a book could somehow begin the process of reconciliation and healing."--Parr & Badger, The Photobook: A History, Vol. 1, pp 274-275.
