Availability: Out of stock

Nobuyoshi ARAKI, photographer. “Seven Stars.” Japan: Consomme Design, 2007, First Edition, PB, dj, 22 cm x 15 cm, 60 pp, 44 single- and double-page b/w gravure photos.

Off the usual Araki beaten track, this little book isn’t listed in any of the references - not even in the recent 2012 reference “Ararchy Photobook Mania.” Small, but still more substantial than a number of Araki's smaller format books, this one is a quality advertisement for Seven Stars Tobacco featuring an eclectic mix of seven successful and stylish Japanese men, including an electric guitarist, a skate-boarder, a fashion designer... The Seven "Stars": Shogen, Takashi Kumagai, Haruhiro Nozaki, Kunichi Nomura, Hisashi Tenmyouya, Shinichi Itou, Junji Ishiwatari. A paean to old-fashioned cool, Araki's chiaroscuro photography is appropriately cinematic and even printed in a classic b/w gravure.

Condition: As-new/Excellent, unopened, still in the original shrink-wrap. The book within the plastic is covered on the front by an info sheet and on the back by cardboard so reference pics/scans are from a previous copy.
