The 38th publication in the Nazraeli Press One Picture Book series. From the publisher: "Tokyo-based photographer Junko Takahashi has selected seven images from her series of portraits of receptionists -- who in their company uniforms are a ubiquitous element of Japanese corporate culture -- and sequenced them into a One Picture Book that is at once both humorous and slightly unsettling. Takahashi's work has been widely published and exhibited in Japan. The Receptionist is her first publication in the United States."
