Japanese Movie Posters: Yakuza, Monster, Pink and Horror

On first glance, *Japanese Movie Posters: Yakuza, Monster, Pink and Horror* appears to be little more than a catalogue for DH Publishing's movie poster business. The last page even provides details on how to order the posters.

However, *Yakuza, Monster, Pink and Horror* is a delight in itself, with 96 pages of katana waving gangsters, bald lesbian nuns, giant pterodactyls, lizards and moths, hardy samurai made up like drag-queens, and several scantily clad actresses in questionable fetish scenarios.

At the beginning of each section, commentators Tetsuya Masuda and Kairakutei Black explain the background to the genres, and chart the rise and fall of the movie stars, the characters and the genres themselves. Godzilla, Mothra and Radon lead the monsters, Beat Takeshi and Princess Lum all make appearances. And there's some wonderful kitsch, like the 'pink' movie *Molester's Train* - 'Riding the subway in just sunglasses and handbag is asking for trouble!'

The ultimate in coffee-table eye-candy.
