Various Photographers "NGS AMC Galphy Series: The Hair Part 8" 1986 Photobook Portfolio

$0.00

Availability: Out of stock

Various Photographers, Yutaka SHIDA, Sakae OUCHI, et al. "Artman Club VIP Members Club Galphy Series: The Hair, Part 8." Japan: Nippon Geijutsu Shuppan, 1986, First Edition, HB, Slipcase, 16 x 12 inches, 24 large glossy color prints.

AMC Artman Club publications were available by subscription only - not in bookstores - this allowed NGS to circumvent Japanese censorship standards. Typical of the care given to the presentation of Artman Club photobooks, the photos in the Hair series are thoughtfully ordered - in general, gradually progressing from images of nudes in outdoor nature settings through torso studies and finally intimate close-ups.

The Japanese photographer contributors will be familiar to collectors of the KPC Kaigo no Hana Sha Girl Annuals: Toshiro KARIYA (2 plates); Yoshimori FUJIWARA (1 plate); Shin KAMIMURA (2 plates); Yutaka SHIDA (4 plates); Masao YATO (2 plates); Sakae OUCHI (7 plates); Eiichi KUBOTA (3 plates); Motohisa FUJITA (2 plates); Shouji SUGIYAMA (1 plate).

Fewer prints than usual but the prints are of a larger size and higher quality. This is the only issue of the Hair series that I have seen in this format - same size and format as the NGS HQ series of portfolios.

Condition: Very Good, in the original slipcase, as issued.
