TADANORI YOKOO (SELF-CHOSEN WORKS)
Tokyo, JAPAN, Keibun-sha., 1977, First Edition. Illustrated Wrappers, 4to, 88pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Text in Japanese. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Best known for his seventies album covers for Miles Davis, Santana, the Beatles, and more, Tadanori Yokoo is arguably the most influential Japanese graphic designer of the Twentieth Century. Emerging from the turbulent post-war generation, his bold, unprecedented style mixed traditional Ukiyo-E imagery with Japanese comics, Western sexuality, and Pop Art to create an extraordinary body of work that continues to this day. This is a choice early collection published only in Japan that vividly reproduces seventy-one of Tadanori Yokoo's film, music, theatre, exhibition and advertising posters created between 1965 and 1976. An internally most handsome example of this uncommon item showing moderate overall wear and abrading to the extremities of the wrappers along with frayng and paper loss to the bottom inch of the spine. It has been priced accordingly.. Good./No Jacket.
