日本緊縛師列伝 (Nihon kinbakushi retsuden)

This book, edited by Sanada Nobuyuki, I found particularly interesting. It presents eight Japanese bakushi with a section of colour images of their work, and interviews: Nureki Chimuo, Akechi Denki, Shima Shikou, Hige, Marai Masato, Naka Akira, Randa Mai and Sayaka.

In addition, it has a few historical sections with black-and-white images by Itoh Seiu… and a couple of pages with images of Osada Eikichi at the Bondage bar in Shinjuku – probably taken at the same time as the images printed in the magazine in my previous blog-post (here: https://kinbakubooks.wordpress.com/2014/08/19/osada-eikichi-in-m女マニアcollector-1999/ )

Master K reports in his ”Meetings with remarkable men”:
”I then ask [Arisue Go] which of his many ’model books’ does he prefer? (…) Without thinking, Arisue replies that his favorite model book is ’Ambient M’ featuring the model Toyota Maho. I agree. This beautiful book from 2000 by the gifted photographer Anju really is a stunner. The color photography is lush and impressive and beautifully conveys Toyota’s delicate, waifish beauty. I ask Arisue about the kinbaku and he replies that doing it was satisfying but very challenging because the model was not really capable of withstanding much forceful, ’real’ tying.”
