“Midori is the name of the beautiful young girl who appears in Higuchi Ichiyo's classic novel Takekurabe. This series of portraits explores the idea that Midori has grown up to work in a massage parlor, transferring the setting from the Meiji period to contemporary Japan."--Kotaro Iizawa, Araki: Self, Life, Death

One of Araki's scarcest books. This original 1982 first printing is one of Araki's more fragile publications.

Condition: Only Fair, structurally sound but considerable age staining on the outer wrap. The interior pages with images are pretty good though..
