Oh Nippon! Photographs by Nobuyoshi Araki. Miki Shuppan, Tokyo, 1971. Unpaged. First edition. Stiff wrappers in photo-illustrated dust jacket. Photo-illustrated endpapers. Black-and-white reproductions.
A rare copy of Araki's first conventionally published book (just one privately published book preceded it)! Stylistically similar to his slightly earlier Xeroxed books, its eroticism is more innocent--more trippy-psychedelic-fun--than the outer-limits-of-transgression that he would go on to endlessly document in the wild proliferation of his later books (thought to number over 400 by now).
Near Fine+; a nice copy; some wear to extremities; trace of age darkening; moderate spine creasing.
