Nobuyoshi ARAKI "Mirai no sei" - "Future Sex" 1970 Photobook


Availability: Out of stock

Nobuyoshi ARAKI, photographer, (and others). “Mirai no sei" - "Sex in the Future.” Masao YAMAZAKI, editor. Japan: Seifu Shobo, 1970, First Edition, PB, dj, 21 x 15 cm, 148 pp, color & b/w photos, text in Japanese.

Unusual book, notable for being one of the first publications of Nobuyoshi Araki's photography - perhaps the first - published one year before "Oh Nippon!" and "Sentimental Journey." Strange, groovy, odd, ridiculous - a mash up of nude photography, speculative writings, manga cartoons, art collages, fake "future" newspaper articles and pinku eiga movie stills. "The Love Doctors," "Multi-Marriage," "Alice in the Fog," are some of the chapter titles that I can figure out. Araki contributes to three of the chapters.

Condition: Very Good, binding is worked-in and pliable, but no loose pages, otherwise a clean copy.
