I'm just writing this as a general review of Saeki's work. I'm not prepared to buy one of his books yet, so I just looked at all the available scans online and am going to guess that most are from this edition.

These are contemporary Japanese art books, but they are almost H manga or guro. Its described accurately as nightmare erotica. Each page is a single panel. However, they are mostly illustrative, in that you can infer a backstory from the characters outfits, expressions, postures, setting e
A worthwhile purchase with very compelling and challenging imagery. Absolute great use of color and shape in these illustrations. Great layout and excellent quality of paper and vellum as well. A wonderful and brilliant supplement to my growing art book collection.

Haunting, vibrant, gorgeous, disturbing, entertaining, creepy, funny. Toshio Saeki carries the torch lighted by Hokusai (especially in "The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife/Ama and the Octopus") beautifully.
