Product Description

Published by Hidekazu - 2005 - Japan

15 x 21 cm - 164 pages in colours - soft cover

"Once upon a time there used to be great japanese smutty magazines - 150-200 pages chock-full of colour photos and nothing else - nowadays typically half those pages are replaced by a thick wedge of board containing a “bonus” dvd (cover price is increased for this “freebie”) - the rest of the pages merely being screenshots and no real content - pure spam - anyway, just found the above book in the remainder bookstores which harks back to better times - it’s a compilation of images (slightly different selection) from a bimonthly magazine that came out in 1997 during the (mostly underground) surge of interest in (ero)grotesque things - contents ranged from Romain Slocombesque bandaged dolls to rape/lustmurder scenarios, photography by Fuiji Akio (of Kinbiken), stills from Masami Akita (Merzbow) harakiri films, doggie play and other paraphillic porno delights (transexual, fat, geriatric…) - too good to last of course, the magazine folded after just three issues - and even those were almost immediately being remaindered (ie: on sale for a third of the cover price - in the publisher’s attempt to recoup his losses or simply make space in his stockroom) - sadly it’s unlikely anything like this will ever appear again…"
