Book of the Week: A Pick by Ed Templeton

USSR 1991 by Keizo Kitajima
This week's book of the week pick comes from artist and pro skateboarder Ed Templeton, who selected the remarkable documentary project by Keizo Kitajima USSR 1991 published by Little Big Man.

"Lately I have been leafing through USSR 1991 by Keizo Kitajima. It’s filled with beautiful Kodachrome photographs, rich in color, of Russia and its people right at its turning point. The times were changing fast and this Japanese photographer was there to see and capture these moments frozen in time 22 years ago. It’s an amazing time capsule. The book is also lavishly made with great attention to detail, a slipcase, multiple fold-outs, various paper stocks." -- Ed Templeton
