Illustrator Aquirax/Akira Uno came to prominence in the 1960's-70's for creating the amazing poster artwork of prolific underground theatre icon Shuji Terayama and his Tenjo Sajiki theatre group. Here is an unusual example of their collaborative work : the wonderful psychedelic interpretation of the 'Tales of 1001 nights', written by Terayama and profusely illustrated by Uno. Very rare and very special. In good condition, some signs of age/yellowing on the inside pages.
