Fujisan.com seems to have at least one of these books over here. There's no images available but the ISBN matches up. The shipping cost is around $5. I've ordered a couple of books from this place before and had no problems.(Also, thanks for posting all these works by Rokuro. They're all exquisite...I love this artist.)
I especially like the darker and richer images.
Will, the best thing would be to have someone trustworthy in Japan to whom the books could be initially sent. Amazon Japan has free domestic shipping (or at least, did when I was there a few years back).
this is actually quite troubling.. beautiful images..
Great! I'm in luck though, a Japanese friend just bought me two Taniuchi-books, I'm really looking forward to recieving them. Thanks for the pst and tips on the books.
Fantastic and startling artist! Thank you for sharing!
