Put this up on the blog a while ago, but since I've had a few inquiries about it recently, I'm reblogging it. The book is still available.
This is another book I've got on the shelf. It was published to commemorate NIPPO's 70th anniversary, and has pictures of all the winners from the establishment of NIPPO onward. They've got loose pages added to the back of all the winners since the book was published.
It starts in black and white, but the last bit (and all the loose pages) is in color. The book is 90 pages and includes pictures of Shikoku, Kishu, Shiba, and Akita. It's really interesting to see the evolution of the breeds, type becoming more defined as the years go by, and of course it's great to have pictures of some of the amazing dogs of years past.
If anyone's interested in owning a copy, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll figure out how much the shipping etc will cost. Cost should come to around 3000 yen including international shipping.
