Suehiro Maruo 28 Scenes of Murder


Seriously violent book of 28 scenes of murder that is specially bound so each print is easily removable to be framed. The prints are half and half by Suehiro Maruo and Kazuichi Hanawa and are done in the style of Ukiyo-e paintings "Muzane" [無残絵] - (drawings of cruelty). There is an oversized fold-out in the back with six black and white Ukiyo-e paintings in the same style and text in Japanese describing such paintings. Each print is on very heavy card stock and the reverse of each print has the title of the work plus an extended description of the scene of murder (all in Japanese).

Complete list of plates (Japanese/English).

Condition: Used condition. Obi is missing. Top back edge is very wavy. There is a 1" dent on the back of the book which carries through the last couple prints and gets smaller and smaller. All prints are present and attached.
