Well, our legacy certainly isn’t one of perfection. In our last issue, in the feature on photographer Shoji Mitsuhiro, we accidentally neglected to fit one of his photographs to the frame we created. The result was an unfortunate crop.

Editor’s note: In our last issue, we said that the tobacco article would be a two-part series. We are going to delay release of the second part as some important litigation proceeds.

さて。我々のことが語り継がれるとしたら、完璧というイメージは確実にあてはまらないでしょう。前号で特集した写真家小路光博の作品を、誤ってページの枠に合わせてしまいました。結果として写真の端をトリミングしてしまったのは残念なことです。

編集者注:前号で、たばこ特集を7-8月号と9-10号の2回にわたり掲載するとお知らせしましたが、訴訟が継続中のため掲載を遅らせることにいたしました。
