This book is the first volume from Nureki’s famed Kinbiken study sessions. The book has several pictorials plus a CD featuring 30 short clips of Nureki in action. Drawing, art, class discussion and more. This is an amazing glimpse into Nureki’s system of tying, teaching, and play. Hard to find and an amazing document. A must have for anyone interested in the history of kinbaku or Nureki’s style.
In 1993, Japanese publisher Kawade Paperback put out a “erotic graphic” book featuring Bettie Page. A very interesting and fascinating glimpse into the Japanese interest in an American cult model and phenomenon.
Another classic work by Sugiura Norio, the legendary Japanese SM photographer. Released in 2011 and already out of print, this book includes photo shoots from a variety of models, each tied tightly and displaying the classic “beautiful suffering” that Sugiura is known for capturing. A really fine collection of his work.
