Condition: Fair, some toning and handling wear, SIGNED on the dust jacket by Araki, “Kyoco Arakiss,” with a self-portrait caricature drawing and a message in Japanese that possibly means "Fuck-off, future". 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 copy, possibly at the bar along with the many Araki photos and books that decorated the establishment.
