Muku Youji: ”縄 Jyo” (2000)

Muku Youji: ” Jyo” (2000)

『椋陽児 縄 Jyo』

A cardboard box, containing a sturdy and large-format book with a retrospect of Muku’s artwork, some in colour, mostly in black and white. It may be reasonably assumed that most of the rope-work in the images is by Nureki. The last pages show also some of Muku’s manga.

The title combines the sign ”nawa” (rope) with ”Jyo”. I am uncertain if this in any way is related to Yukimura’s expression ”Jyowa”, that recently was used by Pedro Diniz Reis for a very interesting movie about Kinbaku (see http://www.jyowa.com ).

Limited edition, 1500 numbered copies, this is number 1227.

Itoh Seiu: 黒縄記 (1951)

Itoh Seiu: 黒縄記 (1951)

This artwork of a book comes intricately packaged in a cardboard box with a see-through window in front and a small peek-hole in the back. Once opened, the book has some blue silhouettes of bodies in bondage (these are reappearing on the last page). The back-cover is covered in silver with small pieces of gold. Mainly a text-book, it has a number of pages with illustrations (all protected by an additional page of rice-paper), and a section of photos. I especially appreciated seeing Itoh Seiu’s hands…

Maeda Juan: 責め絵集

Maeda Juan: Art Works 責め絵集 (seme-e shu)

A hardbound book with the artwork of Maeda Juan. In the new edition of The Beauty of Kinbaku, Master ”K” describes Maeda’s style as ”’lyrical’ but also shocking” – and indeed some of the torturous and bloody images from this book I choose not to present here on the blog. They are all, however, done with mastery.
