Four books with works by Asaji Muroi

This post is slightly off topic, as only a few of the images in these books involve rope. Most often the focus is on a kind of ”dog-play” with a dynamic of dominance and submission. But the powerful images of Asaji Muroi (born 1946) have over the decades been featured in publications like Kitan Club and S&M Sniper, and Kinbiken even included a video devoted to dog-play in their film-series.

The very large format book ”Les Bien Aimees d’Asaji Muroi” has an introduction written by Agnes Giard (printed in French as well as in English), and is printed on very thick, good quality paper. It was printed by Timeless in a limited edition of 300 copies. Not printed by a Japanese publisher, it is also one of few exeptions to be included on this blog anyway.

The smaller, blueish book is called 僕のイメージ画集, published by the SM Museum in 1993, as is the A4-size book 首輪をつけたビーナス (Venus wears a collar), from 1994.

The smallest book, 哀犬倶楽部 / SM 露出プレイ, is beautifully packaged in a slipcase with the English title ”Life with Woman Dog”. It is edited by Hideaki Nakada, and the photographer and bakushi Yasuji Watanabe (already know to readers of this blog), and comes with a postcard and a small poster in black and white print. Numbered edition – this is number 278 of a limited edition 1000. It is also the only one of the books that actually has an ISBN: 4-8130-0503-9. Publisher: Taiyo Tosho, 2004.
