Only three months has passed and only some 250 copies of our limited edition hardcover photobook on Horiyoshi III remains in stock. It has gone faster than we initially thought and this makes us more than happy. Further book projects are already in the works in order to present traditional Irezumi to the world.
Our first book of Horiyoshi III dragon paintings, "Ryushin", released in october last year, has already sold in about 500 copies. Since the limited edition for this one was 1000 copies, it seems that the two titles are competing neck to neck in sales.
Anyone out there that still want to secure copies of these titles can order them through this blog or by visiting our website.
