État / Condition — Fine.

Remarques & avis / Review — Numerous series that cover a wide range of topics (playful sex in a studio, a walk through a public housing complex, Yoko, male shibari, etc.). A thick, well-designed and well-printed volume and unarguably one of ARAKI Nobuyoshi's best. "A long-planned volume with photos from 1967 to 1972. As many as 16 sequential photos to a page, giving the book a movie-like feeling. Images of sex and violence, and, abruptly, of his father's funeral" (IIZAWA Kohtaro, ibid., p.80).

Divers / Misc. — Ref.: BERTOLOTTI, Livres de nu, 188.
