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.
From the new defunct Sniper, this book features some of the best work of the Sniper SM/Kinbaku style. Released in three volumes, these books show what they call “traditional Japanese erotic art.” A nice volume, especially for the included DVD.
Bond 1 is the first of three model books featuring rope by Yukimura Haruki. The model for this volume is Yu Kinoshita. As a model book, this volume is interesting and the photos are beautiful. It is light on rope and does not have very elaborate or strenuous ties.
