Printed boards; full-color illustrated dust jacket; 4to; pp. 124, illustrated throughout in b/w and color. Near fine with scarce obi and color poster laid-in. Text in Japanese. One of a series of books by this publisher about contemporary Japanese artists. Devoted to the work of Japanese designer, illustrator, painter, Akira (Aquirax) Uno, whose work is characterized by fantastic visuals, capricious and sensuous line flow, flamboyant (and occasionally grotesque) eroticism, and frequent use of collage and bright colors. Uno was prominently involved with the Japanese undergound art of the 1960s and 1970s, and dabbled in theater, fashion, film and animation. This book is a heady amalgamation of Uno's surrealist-inspired compositions in a variety of media. Bookseller Inventory # D6183
