"Marvelous Tales of Black Ink brings Araki's language of photography and his games with words together into the same frame. The Kanji (Japanese logographic characters) painted directly and with equal intensity onto both the surfaces of explicit nudes and floral compositions raise the stakes of the symbolic associations between flowers and sexuality beyond even that proposed by Georges Bataille in his classic essay "The Language of Flowers". And although the calligraphic games that Araki plays tend often towards sexuality, they do so only in the most extraordinarily imaginative and intellectually sophisticated ways. These are word-games that would make Marcel Duchamp proud, even if they might also make him blush..."

Publisher specialising in limited edition Photo and Art Books.

We view the book as the final step in an artists process, and encourage the artist to engage in the conception, design and feel of the book.

Having worked on the book closely with the artist we feel it is only right we also keep a close relationship with bookshops.

Occasionally our books can be bought with special editions.
