Nobuyoshi ARAKI, photographer. "Ku” - “Empty/Sky." Tokyo: Wides Shuppan, 2008, First Edition, HB, dj, 16 cm x 22 cm, 210 pp, b/w photos.

Unusually designed photobook with half of the book pages printed normally on both sides and the other bound in a double-folded pseudo fukuro toji style.

Condition: Very Good. Spectacularly SIGNED by Araki, “Kyoko Arakiss,” with a self-portrait caricature drawing in silver marker. A unique association copy from the "Hanaguruma" collection. "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. “Kyoko” along with “Yoshiko” were the two proprietresses of the bar, easily recognizable from a number of Araki's photos, usually singing karaoke. This was her personal copy.
