Just arrived, the first volume of "Sex Industry Archive of Treasured Images" (風俗資料館 秘蔵画選集). Definitely a lighter theme than Vol 2 - "Hidden Pictures of Cruelty" - Vol 1 explores fantasy and surrealism with a little light bondage and spanking. Artwork is by Ran Akiyoshi (秋吉巒), and Aya Shijo (四条綾).

A new photographer to AkaTako - Kenny Horie - has been featured in Talking Heads magazines several times. His dark photos will take you to different worlds ranging from post-apocalyptic futures, romantic walks in nature, or innocent fun at the playground.

A wonderfully terrifying little book with artwork by three artists: Seiyo Usui, Takashi Shima, and Kazunori Kanze. There's a good reason the book is called "Hidden Pictures of Cruelty" - very definitely NSFW so view at your own risk!
