Daido MORIYAMA "Hysteric Glamour No. 8" 1997 Photobook Fine Condition


Availability: Out of stock

Daido MORIYAMA, photographer. "Hysteric Glamour No. 8." Osamu Wataya and Toshio Shiratani, art direction. Tokyo: Hysteric Glamour and Nobuhiko Kitamura, 1997, PB, ca. 400 pp, b/w reproductions, Limited Edition.

The last of Moriyama's three giant Hysteric Glamour volumes (nos. 4, 6 & 8). Hysteric estimated the print run of Vol. 6 to be about 600 - of which 400-450 were for sale and the remainder for "distribution" - to friends and colleagues.

Shipping costs: International EMS (express mail service) delivery estimated within 2-4 days - $54.00 (USA), $62.00 (Europe). Shipping weight: approx. 2775g.
