An acclaimed monograph, celebrating one of the most iconic and revolutionary artists of our time.
"Yayoi Kusama transcended the art world to become a fixture of popular culture, in a league with Andy Warhol, David Hockney, and Keith Haring." ——The New York Times
Kusama is internationally renowned for her groundbreaking work on themes such as infinity, self-image, sexuality, and compulsive repetition. A well-known name in the Manhattan scene of the 1960s, Kusama's subsequent work combined Psychedelia and Pop culture with patterning, often resulting in participatory installations and series of paintings. This monograph is arguably still one of the most comprehensive studies on her work to date.

All the sights Urbanowicz had seen in Japanese animation and comics sprawled before his eyes. He felt more like he was coming back to a place he knew but forgot rather than somewhere completely new. The book offers a foreigner's view of Tokyo. The author hopes that both of the readers who have never been to Tokyo and those who know the city well will find the 50 shops in this book interesting and weirdly nostalgic.
