Closer still

Our printer, Fälth & Hässler, called today with the great news that all photographs to be featured in our new book on Horiyoshi III, "Kokoro", are now processed and ready for printing. We have checked that all the pages are in their correct order in the final document. Tomorrow I will recieve the proofs for the photos, which have to be checked and okayed, and then sent back. All in all the realization of our efforts is approaching, an almost unreal sensation. Usually there is a void, an emptiness, in the production for us once the book is handed over to our very skilled printers. Come the days just before the Milan tattoo convention we will finally have the result in our hands. Perhaps the longest, most anxious awaiting we have been subjected to since we started Kofuu-Senju Publications.

Pre-orders are coming in, and to make sure that you will be able to get a low number of this strictly limited hardcover edition of 55o copies only, please go here for info on how to place your pre-order.

  1. Hi, I'm Miss from Italy.
    Today I find your page looking in to the web for an Fudo's image for our blog.
    I was amazed by the quality of your pictures and I think that, as soon as possible, we'll buy your book.
    Meanwhile I wanted to ask permission to submit your blog with a post about you.
    You really did a wonderful job!

    thank's a lot
