”Collection of Kinbaku Poses That You Can Draw Right Now – Let’s draw authentic shibari!”

This book made me happy!

I love Kannas rope, but there are – so far – very few publications. (We are all longing for that crowdfunded 10 years celebration-book to eventually get published…)

With this title, I was not sure what to expect. But I was happily surprised.

The book offers 160 pages, with very clear and detailed photos of Kanna’s ties from multiple angles for each tie. Four models – the ever beautiful Kagura being one of them. Neutral white background makes the images somewhat abstract – somehow like a catalogue of ties. (And of course also some drawings with hints on how to make sketches on this topic. But mainly a photo-book.)

Bonus: As far as I understand, the book has not been adult rated, and should thus be possible to order internationally without big problems.

Format: B5, 160 pages

Models: かさいあみ、神楽、蝶月真綾、牡丹

Publisher: Sanwa, Tokyo

ISBN: 978-4-7769-1874-5

Kinoko Hajime: Nawa-Ato  縄痕 (Rope Marks)

This book was made for a photo-exhibition Kinoko held in Tokyo in March 2018.

The photos have been taken the last five years.

The topic is ”rope marks”, understood as the traces of rope not only in the physical sense, but also emotionally.

Kinoko was kind enough to bring me a copy of the book to his recent workshop in Paris and sign it for me.

The historically interested readers of the blog may want to check out an earlier post about a book with a somewhat similar idea, twenty years ago:

Naka Akira & Hourai Kasumi & Sugiura Norio: Itoh Seiu edition (2017)

極私的緊縛野史 蓬莱かすみ 第二弾 (伊藤晴雨編)

This is the second photo-project released by Sugiura, with Naka tying Hourai Kasumi.

This time, they have taken special inspiration from Itoh Seiu.

See my post about the first one here.

A B5-size booklet with fantastic photographs, and a 95 minutes DVD. You can see a short clip on Sugiura’s website here: http://www.sugiuranorio.tv/top/products/detail.php?product_id=1814

This is VERY powerful material, a meeting between kinbaku-masters, seeking beauty in suffering, honouring the late Itoh.

This is a limited edition publication. I was happy to get it directly from Hourai Kasumi during her workshop in Paris this Spring with her signature on the cover.

Akechi Denki: ”Complete works of Cinemagic” (2001)

喪服奴隷コレクション [Mourning slave collection]

This is a photo-book with material from Cinemagic, a video company founded in 1983, that was run for many years by Yoshimura Shoichi, and that was very influental for the S&M-VHS boom during the 1990s.

Akechi Denki did many VHS-videos with Cinemagic (some of which have later been released on DVD). This book has a wealth of photos from this collaboration.

Publisher: Sanwa, 2001

ISBN: 978-4-8835-6830-7

Shima Shikou: Special issue of SM Spirit (1991) Nekketsu nyotai chokyo ”BEST 20”

Again, a thick photo-book with many outdoor scenes. A special issue of the magazine SMスピリッツ from January 1991. Also many photos of outdoor blowjobs, enema play etc that I have chosen not to include here.

Erisa Satoh: Tristes Tropiques: Akira Naka’s Blue

This booklet is a rare photographic exploration of kinbaku. Not focussed on the tied up person (although they are visible in some photos), also not focused on the interaction between the person tying and the person being tied (which was often the case in Erisa Satoh’s previous book) – but instead the focus is singularly on the tying person, Naka Akira, in a certain… blue… mood.

A very beautiful project.

See my earlier post on Erisa Satoh’s previous book wih Naka here:

Naka Akira: Shibari to Seme (2017)

Naka Akira: 縛りと責め [Shibari to Seme]

This book is a kind of repackaging of vintage material. It offers stills from sixteen videos that Naka Akira did in collaboration with the director 夢流ZOU, from 2002 to 2008, most of them from the original ”Nawa Etsu”-series (”Rope Joy”), all earlier published by Art Video. In addition to the photo-book, there is included a DVD with two and a half hours of material, cut from eleven of the films. Master ‘K’ once included this series of ”The 10 best Kinbaku films and Videos ever produced” – In my view, there is no doubt that they belong there.
