MARUOGRAPH 1, by Suehiro Maruo - 1996 [1st Ed]


Maruograph 1

by Suehiro Maruo

FIRST EDITION of Japanese manga artist Suehiro Maruo's art book Maruograph. Influenced by the muzan-e style (literally bloody prints) of traditional ukiyo-e, popularized during the Edo and Meiji period, Suehiro Maruo's work depicts scenes of cerebral eroticism, intense violence and body horror, all executed with his stylized surrealism. The book is arranged in three sections with each section featuring a range of content in distinct styles drawn from the artist's career. Sections include: Ninja to Akujo, Kitarubeki Sekai, and Tokyo no Mokushiroku. Features 80 individually numbered plates in both elegant black and white and vibrant full color, some of which are double-page. Unpaginated. 7.75" by 10.5".
