Poetry. Art. Collaboration. About her collaboration with Robert Glück, Kathleen Fraser writes, "IN COMMEMORATION OF THE VISIT OF FOREIGN COMMERCIAL REPRESENTATIVES TO JAPAN, 1947 is a small picture book assembled as a memento of Japan's finest tourist sites, to be given to their new allies (and recent adversaries). I discovered the book when my friend Bob Glück sent me to an Asian antique store, where he thought I might find 'little things' for Christmas gifts. Seeing the book in the $1 box, I bought a copy and began to write a poem sequence based on each of the photos and their captions, not knowing that Bob had also bought this book and was writing his own version from the same collection of pictures." Featuring color reproductions of the entire postcard book.
