Brand new book of traditional rope bondage by Hajime Kinoko titled "Hanafuda Kinbaku". The entire book follows the format of a deck of Hanafuda playing cards. A new girl for each month featured in a setting of that month's flower or plant (according to Hanafuda cards). Very artistic and beautiful book!
