A very rare promotional publication by All Nippon Airways that was only given to customers who had travelled on certain flights to Kyushu. The volume of text is a short story by Ijuin Shizuka, a popular writer of Korean ancestry. The actress in the images is Honjo Manami. There is a strong underlying eroticism in these images. Unusually for Araki there is no nudity on display. The present work curiously brings Araki back to what he originally rebelled against, namely advertising and “those private lives and scenes that are essentially fake”. No copy on OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
