Muku Youji: ” Jyo” (2000)

『椋陽児 縄 Jyo』

A cardboard box, containing a sturdy and large-format book with a retrospect of Muku’s artwork, some in colour, mostly in black and white. It may be reasonably assumed that most of the rope-work in the images is by Nureki. The last pages show also some of Muku’s manga.

The title combines the sign ”nawa” (rope) with ”Jyo”. I am uncertain if this in any way is related to Yukimura’s expression ”Jyowa”, that recently was used by Pedro Diniz Reis for a very interesting movie about Kinbaku (see http://www.jyowa.com ).

Limited edition, 1500 numbered copies, this is number 1227.
