Iketani was the photographer of choice for all of Japan's idols of the 1970s, and as such, all of the prolific photographers in the Japanese Nude Glamour photography field of today owe him a stylistic debt. This book has three sections: the first focuses on "exotic" models of mixed-race. The second has examples of his best Nude Glamour photos of the idols of the day like Agnes LUM, Momoe YAMAGUCHI, Terumi AZUMA, etc. The third section is a group of romantic David Hamilton/Jock Sturges/Jacques Alexandre style images with like models - very much like the early work of Yoji Ishikawa, but it predates any of Ishikawa's photobooks and is otherwise completely unique in the publications of Iketani.

Models: Yuko ASANO, Cheryl, Kei SHIKAMA, Keiko USAMI, Anita SAKAI, Maria NAJIA, Yoko NATSUKI, Sabine KANEKO, Paula NOZAWA, Yumiko YAMAZAKI, Masako NATSUME, Nancy CHIENI, Yuko KATAGIRI, Rino KATASE, Christine, Sheila, Rika MIURA, June, Makiko YAMAZOE, Satomi TEZUKA, Kimiko IKEGAMI, Lucia SANTOS, Janet YADA, Junko SAKURADA, Kumiko OOBA, Nana OKADA, Shizue ABE, Ryoko SAKAGUCHI, Naomi HASE, Yuki MIZUHARA, Kaori YUMI, Naoko KEN, Kiwako DAIICHI, Anne-Louise, Jun FUBUKI, Mako MIDORI, Maya HIROMI, Terumi AZUMA, Kumi TAGUCHI, Eri KANUMA, Mieko YAMAUCHI, Teresa NODA, Yukari YAMAMOTO, Mieko HARADA, Midori KINOUCHI, Kumiko AIMOTO, Momoe YAMAGUCHI, Keiko AKIMOTO, Chieko MATSUMOTO, Asami KOBAYASHI, Agnes LUM, Iketani's 40th anniversary retrospective photobook included images of some of the same famous models anthologized here, but didn't include any of the pre-1977 photos that are in this book.
