it was amazing
bookshelves: graphic-novels, visual-and-performance-art

I really like his other books of (call 'em) structuralist architectural manga (with occasional fight scenes), but I'm gonna say this is Yokoyama's masterpiece (to date) and the best place to make his introduction. It starts a bit slow but then plunges you into a pleasuredome that rivals the worlds of Raymond Roussel. The introduction of language doesn't puncture the wonderfully inhuman quality of the work, but merely adds clarity to this strange theme park of intoxicating wonders.
