Additional notes:
"A short onomatopoetic text by Oskar Pastior in which every letter »R« has been deleted. The text is illustrated with photographs taken in Tokyo and Kyoto in 1997/98, all showing the letter 'R' instead of an 'L' The first picture of this kind, a pink cushion printed with the slogan 'come in to frower,' provided the title for the story."
