Nobuyoshi ARAKI, photographer. “Shinseiki no Shashin” - “New Century Photographs.” Tokyo: AatRoom, 2001, First Edition, Photo-illustrated paper over boards with red cloth to the spine., 28 x 22 cm, 192pp, color photos. Limited Edition of 1000 Copies.

Condition: Fair/Poor, the binding has become mostly detached from the boards though there are no loose pages. Still... a spectacularly SIGNED copy by Araki from the “Hanaguruma” collection. Signed, “Yoshico Arakiss,” with a self-portrait caricature drawing. A unique association copy - "Hanaguruma" is Araki's favorite Shinjuku bar hangout, recently closed, that he has frequented most evenings for years. With a quick search you can find videos of him drinking and socializing with his girlfriend Kaori and friends. “Yoshiko” along with “Kyoko” were the two proprietresses of the bar, easily recognizable from a number of Araki's photos, usually singing karaoke. This was her copy, possibly at the bar along with the many Araki photos and books that decorated the establishment.
