"A photographic diary incorporating images taken with a compact camera that shows the date. A companion volume to “Pseudo-Reportage” from the same year. Dates are manipulated at random and bear little relation to reality, the first clear manifestation of Araki’s blurring of fact and fiction.--Kotaro Iizawa, Araki: Self, Life, Death

"Araki's images of naked women illustrate a private confrontation with his own sexual fantasies; they testify to his hatred of perverted truth, and at the same time, his love of the perverted lie... Walking the tight-rope between, Araki reveals his backstage props to the audience."--Akira Hasegawa

Condition: Very Good. Book & Case are Very Good with a solid unbent binding, SIGNED and dedicated by Araki in kanji on the front endpaper.
