Additional notes:
The idea for this book is based on a radio report on July 29, 2010, about finding the mummified corpse of Sogen Kato (111) – a bizarre case of pension fraud.

Unique structure.

Card in seven panels printed on both sides in Japanese characters which folds in on itself. The central five panels each contain a four panel illustration which, in turn, contain a folded sheet on which the German text is printed. These fold up and a held onto the card panels by means of tabs. The folded card is contained in a photo-illustrated wrap-around card container which is wrapped with a rubber ribbon on which is printed the name of the author and the title. This is contained in a black felt cloth with a large elastic band holding it tight.
