Yoji ISHIKAWA "NGS Artman Club Portfolio" 1988 Photobook SIGNED 8 Prints Rare


Availability: Out of stock

Yoji ISHIKAWA, photographer. “AMC Artman Club VIP Members Edition Portfolio: Yoji Ishikawa.” Japan: Nippon Geijutsu Shuppan (NGS), undated but probably 1986, First Edition, custom folio with black cloth boards and titles embossed in silver on cover, 8 heavy-stock loose-sheet color prints with cover sheet in a folder, 38 x 28 cm.

NGS Artman Club publications were available by subscription only - not in bookstores - this allowed them to circumvent Japanese censorship standards. 8 images of Ishikawa's favorite models - Sophie (2 prints), Laura, Nancy, Anne, Nadia, Natalie, Cleopatra - in beautiful large high-quality glossy printings suitable for framing.

Ishikawa's NGS publications are extremely rare and super high quality. This is the first time I have seen this item in over 10 years of collecting.

Condition: Excellent. The first print - probably Ishikawa's most famous image of Sophie - is SIGNED in kanji script by Ishikawa in black marker. Very rare to ever see anything signed by Ishikawa.

Shipping costs: International EMS (express mail service) delivery estimated within 2-4 days - $26.00 (USA), $32.50 (Europe). Shipping weight: approx. 1125g.
