A gorgeous limited edition self-published book by Japanese graphic artist, illustrator and painter Tadashito Nadamoto. Here Nadamoto gives close attention to the female figure in a series of characterful line drawings showing such details as a stylish hairstyle or a striking profile. Women smoking, reclining and socialising are elegantly sequenced across the pages. A scarce and important work by Nadamoto, one of the most influential figures in post-War Japanese illustration.
