exhibition at parabolica-bis with costumes and tribute art - i made a new painting "kekkonshiki" - and i think the "showa 90" cover art will also be on show (others too??)
my wife now tells me that kimonos should be wrapped left over right - tho dead bodies are dressed right over left for funerals and burial (so not such an embarrassing faux pas as far as my painting concerned!) - yurei/obake are also depicted right over left - tho a google image search seems to show this isn't always the case and no longer common knowledge...?

well, this was actually a secret to me - it completely passed me by - maybe because i didn't recognise it as a kenichi murata book? - the cover not a very typical kenichi murata image - ironically the content within harks back strongly to the old hand-tinted murata photographs - an excellent collection - the book released by edition reuss in germany in 2016 - "limited collectors edition" it says - and happily uncensored (i dislike the self-censoring of his japanese books - often ugly and distracting, imo)
