Open for Bidding: Eikoh Hosoe & Yukio Mishima: Barakei (Killed by Roses)--1st edition! Open for Bidding: Eikoh Hosoe & Yukio Mishima: Barakei (Killed by Roses)--1st edition!
As Vince Aletti writes in The Book of 101 Books, "Barakei (Killed by Roses) is so splendidly packaged that just opening it is a pleasure—and the seduction doesn't stop there...Mishima, Japan's most celebrated and controversial modern novelist, was also a brilliant provocateur and his presence here turns [the book] into a charged collaboration between artists testing one another's limits."
