"Ryushin", our new Horiyoshi III book, was well recieved at the London Tattoo Convention.
Alex Reinke (Horikitsune, Kofuu) represented Kofuu-Senju Publications, as well as the Horiyoshi III Family, at the London Tattoo Convention that was held this past weekend. Together with him was Kazuyoshi (Horiyoshi III's son) and their friend Horikazu.
The convention was a busy one, and the release of "Ryushin" was highly anticipated as well as very well recieved. Booksales exeeded our expectations, and we are really pleased with the outcome of the weekend.
Myself could not attend this (for us) historic event, but was kept updated daily on the developments. Today I sit anxiously awaiting the delivery of the "Ryushin" copies destined for the Kofuu-Senju Publications swedish office. As soon as they arrive I will post images of the finnished work at this blog, as well as start mailing out copies to all those who pre-ordered it.
It's a lot of work, but it's a lot of fun as well!!
Keep your eyes peeled for the next post!
