The Complete Tadanori Yokoo. Design and layout by Yokoo with photographs by Kenji Ishiguro, Akira Kobayashi, Kishin Shinoyama, Eikoh Hosoe, and others. Barron's, 1977. 330 pp. Small thick quarto. First English edition. Stiff photo-illustrated wrappers with photo-illustrated gatefolds. Printed slipcase. Numerous reproductions of graphic work and photographs in color and black-and-white.

A rare signature! Graphic designer, animator, and photographer Tadanori Yokoo is one of the most compelling figures of post-war Japanese art. He is arguably Japan's most important contemporary graphic artist. This compendium of his early work shows him at his most outrageous - morphing western urban pop and psychedelic influences, with references to Kabuki portraits and traditional Japanese subjects and techniques - all through the lens the 60's cultural mayhem. It is much more inclusive of his early works than the more common 1981 monograph. An important and very scarce look at Yokoo's in the 60's. Originally published by Kodan sha in 1971, was reprinted in this English edition in 1977. In an unlikely bit of cultural drift the publisher was Barrons, at the time a company much better known for their prep materials for standardized tests and college entrance exams.

Fine- in Fine- splipcase; very faint spine creasing; trace of edge wear; slipcase just slightly age age-faded.
