Nobuyoshi ARAKI, photographer. "Moruhine mo Kikanu Gogatsu" - "May, When Even Morphine Has No Effect." Japan: Basilico, 2004, First Edition, PB, case, 21 cm x 15 cm, 192 pp, b/w photos, separate 36 page insert booklet with text in Japanese.

"A collection of vertically orientated photographs specially taken for this volume arranged in almost chronological order. Turning the pages while reading the commentary, contained in a separate volume, enables the reader to appreciate the breadth of Araki's continuous photographic activity."--Kotaro Iizawa, Araki: Self, Life, Death

The title is take from a tanka verse by Minori Miyata: "Lying on my sickbed // In May when even // Morphine has no effect // I intertwine my finger // With yours"

Condition: Excellent, with slipcase, booklet and obi, as fine as ever likely to be found. That being said, if you want to be picky, the booklet was inserted inside the book at publication and naturally stressed the paperback binding at that point only.
