Tetsunori Tawaraya, Too nice junk, 3 accordions, 13 color screenprint, Le Dernier Cri: Marseilles, 2019, ed. 200

When this book arrived in the mail and I opened it up, it was like something exploded in my hands, and I'm still feeling the after effects today — it's just so wild, weird, crazy, pyschedelic and wonderful! The book consists of the covers with flaps and nestled inside are 3 separate accordions. 

Tetsunori lives in Japan and in the late 90s he started drawing portraits of people and musicians in San Diego, CA. In 2002 he formed the Tokyo-based noise rock duo 2up. Apparently he's been on a roll ever since then. For more information about Tetsunori go to:

Individual accordions: 12 pages, 8.5"(h) and 6"(w), when opened 2ft 11inches.
