Japanese Communal Bathing, Swimming, Festivals, and Sport. An Island Nation’s Love of Water Over a Hundred Years Through Japanese Prints, Vernacular Photography and Postcards
Zawadski, William K.
Privately printed near square (17.5 x 18.25 cm) hardcover with printed DJ showing some crimps. 2010. Signed, dated and with an inscription but no recipient, by the author. Edition quantity unknown though pencilled note reads 6/10. Zawadski, a Floridian, collected Japanese prints and photographs and left some of them to the Harn Museum at the University of Florida, and a few other places although these don’t shput out their association with him, for obvious reasons. This document consists of 368 images over its 240 pages, with section headings such as Yakuza Tattoos and Bathers, Sexual Fantasies in Japanese Hot Springs and Japanese Communal Bathing and the Indoor Sento. Very Scarce.
