Condition: Fairly Good, binding is worked-in but no loose pages, obi is still present but it is in two pieces. SIGNED by Araki, “Arakiss,” with original self-portrait drawing and dedicated to "Hanaguruma-san." A rare association copy. "Hanaguruma" is Araki's favorite Shinjuku bar hangout, recently closed, that he has frequented most evenings for years. With a quick search you can find videos of him drinking and socializing with his girlfriend Kaori and friends. The two proprietresses are “Yoshiko” and “Kyoko” and easily recognizable from a number of Araki's photos, usually singing karaoke. This was one of their personal copies, possibly at the bar with the many Araki photos and books that decorated the establishment.
