Fake cherry trees of Tokyo blossom in print

Ever wanted to look at endless photographs of trees? Not just any old trees, but cherry blossoms, pages and pages of the things. And not just any old cherry blossoms, but fake cherry blossoms, no less. You can now, courtesy of the book Cherry Blossom Time in Tokyo by photographer Martin Parr.

Most of the original photographs shown are of fake trees seen in the city during the cherry blossoms season in places such as store windows.

The book, launching this month as an extremely limited edition of 30, is sure to sit happily on the shelf with other great works of Parr, including Boring Postcards, Bored Couples and Benidorm.
