The Transformation of Mother Earth from Nature to Art Photo book of pottery process by Takagi Teijiro
[Japan] Lovely photo book showing the Japanese process of making pottery from digging the clay, firing, painting and with the final photo showing pottery on display in a shop. The book has 16 hand-coloured collotype photos. Interestingly, Takagi has stamped his name over Tamamura's in three places on the colophon page. Each photo has a tissue guard.
