*AkaTako reserves the right to cancel and refund any order if the shipping cost should outweigh the price paid. For example, if you buy a poster and a big heavy book or a large flat print - those items don't exactly pack together well and may need to be shipped separately. So, in that case you will receive an email asking if you want to pay for additional shipping, cancel part OR cancel all of the order.

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!
