A friend in Japan helped me get hold of a box of old issues of ”Kinbiken communications”. They contain mainly text and catalogues over Kinbiken-video clips with small photos in black and white – but many of the photos are fantastic, and all of the issues have some real gems inside. The later issues (with black covers, i.e. no 18 and 19) have a larger section of photos.

Trevor Brown ”Minomushi”
Silkscreen printed book in very large format, 28 suspension images.
Limited Edition of 199 copies. This is number 31.
Signed by Trevor Brown.
Publisher: Jinx, 2000

In 1993, as he moved to Japan, Trevor Brown visited several Kinbiken-meetings. He wrote about this, and a meeting in 1997, on his blog in a text that gives an interesting view: http://web.archive.org/web/20050312124436/http://www.pileup.com/babyart/kinbiken.htm

Trevor Brown kindly wrote me and added the following information: ”these images mostly copied from old Sanwa books compilations – so rope artist unknown – but almost certainly Nureki-sensei in many cases”. He also provided a link to an interview he did in the 1990s with Masami Akita, also dealing with Kinbiken: http://web.archive.org/web/19970625171403/http://www.tb-art.com/tb-art/html/archive/merzbow_interview.htm

A text by Masami Akita dealing with the history of bondage in Japan can be found online in two parts, here (1): http://www.bondageproject.com/public/history_e1.htm  And here (2): http://www.bondageproject.com/public/history_e2.htm

The section at the end of part (2) deals with Kinbiken, just scroll down.

Sm collector was a magazine that was started in 1972 by amongs others Minomura Kou. It folded 1985. Most of the images above are from the 1980-issue. Various bakushi and models are featured, but quite a few images show Nureki’s ropework. They contain also illustrations by for example Muku Youji and, represented here with the lady holding a gun, Harukawa Namio.
