About the book
64 beautiful color portraits by Yoichi Nagata from the series, Star of the Stars
Star of the Stars by Yoichi Nagata is an elegant publication! It’s format is so unusual for a publication that it screams for you to open it and gaze long and hard at the photographs within. You immediately feel as though you are looking at the original images, which I have done for the past several years so I am very familiar with the work. Not only was I drawn to the size of the reproductions in the book, but also to their vibrant color, which is so close to the actual images! Again, making me believe that these are the ‘real thing’.
In Star of the Stars, Yoichi Nagata has magnificently captured the underground life of the Japanese ‘clubgoers’ which is especially evident with the large centerfold at the end of the book of Lulun which measures 16.5×23”.
The production of this book took more than two years of work before it came to fruition and it certainly was worth the wait! I do not know of another book that is so elegantly produced! I hope that it reaches a world wide audience.
