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.
