Ryuki: Mysterious Dragons By Horiyoshi III

Edited by Miki Vialetto

Massive cloth-bound, embossed, deluxe hardcover book from Italy featuring 250 Horiyoshi illustrations that have never been published before. For 40 years, Horiyoshi III (Nakano Yoshihito) has been tattooing, painting, and drawing and is renowned the world over for his incredible and versatile talent.

In Japanese, Ryu means dragon, while Ki means extraordinary: Horiyoshi III has chosen these two words and blended them to create a new word to celebrate this mystical otherworldly creature that owes its fame to so many stories and legends of Japanese folklore. Leafing through the pages the reader is immersed in the floating world, a magical realm with an unforgettable ambience, deftly outlined by one of the most charismatic and authoritative Japanese artists in the world.
