This limited edition is hand-crafted and quarter-bound in leather; each book is signed by photographer Shimpei Asai. Collector copies are numbered 351 to 1,966, to commemorate the year of The Beatles' visit to Tokyo. The cover is black buckram, silk-screen printed and gold-foiled with Asai's iconic photo of The Beatles' onstage at the Budokan.

Each copy comes in a slipcase printed with a traditional Japanese kimono pattern, and a logo type design inspired by the tickets from The Beatles 1966 shows. A ribbon bookmark with a facsimile ticket is included. Printed on art papers, at 25cm x 30cm (9.8 inches x 11.8 inches), The Beatles visit to Japan is revisited in over 204 pages of words and photographs.

'Through Shimpei Asai's intimate lens, The Beatles seem relaxed in the eye of the storm. His beautifully presented Genesis collection captures the quartet on stage, chilling out, in Noh theatre masks, playing kotos in kimonos.' - MOJO magazine
