This book is a visual foray into Japan's popular and influential Gothic-Lolita and Gothic Punk subculture. It showcases a creative lifestyle synthesized from a remix of Victoriana, the macabre, anime, and theatricality, drawing on the early punks of the '70s and '80s and the club kids of the '90s. Japanese Goth blends disparate elements of global pop culture into something fun, stylish, and unique--part Marilyn Manson, part Hello Kitty. It attracts established figures from Tokyo's trendsetting fashion, art, and design scenes, and has inspired the next generation of designers, tastemakers, and fashionistas. Featured here are key designers, artists, and personalities including Mana & Gackt, Kokusyoku Sumire, Ayako-S, Koitsukihime, Gloomy Bear, and many others.

Gift for Japanophile daughter she loved it!User Review - victronab - Overstock.com
My 15 year old daughter is a giant Manga Japanophile. She loves this book and uses it often for inspiration for her drawing dressing and other arty endeavors. It is high quality book with lovely photos. Occasionally there are full color photos that get lost in the creases of the two pages. Read full review
