A Collection of Stage Fantasy Photos. Tenjo Sajiki People.Tokyo: Doyo Bijutsusha, 1977 Stock Code: 35143
First edition, first impression. A photographic study of the Japanese independent theatre troupe co-founded by Shūji Terayama, Kujō Kyōko, Yutaka Higashi, Tadanori Yokoo, and Fumiko Takagi. The theatre was a major phenomenon on the Japanese underground scene in the 1970s, producing stage works marked by experimentalism, folklore influences, social provocation, grotesque eroticism, and the flamboyant fantasy characteristic of Terayama's oeuvre.
Large quarto. Original pink and black boards, titles to spine in white, rose endpapers. With the photographic dust jacket.
Black and white and colour photographic plates throughout.
A superb copy in the very slightly creased dust jacket and wraparound band.
