The series consists of photographs taken around 1965, when Araki was working at advertising company Dentsu. A special box that imitates the size of the photographic paper case in which the prints were stored contains a photobook that binds pages that reproduce the thickness and texture of the original prints. Limited edition of 1000. By rigorously selecting the paper and adjusting the printing, the deterioration of the boxes and stickers, the traces of the tape and the burnt expression of the print are reproduced.
