SECRET DOLL UNDERGROUND. {Cover title: Secret Doll Underground: Japanese Surrealist Dolls form the Yaso Collection, Tokyo.} Yuichi Konno. Shinbaku Books, London, 2014. Japanese Art Perspectives, 1. 112 pp. with 88 ills. (75 col.). 28 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781840683219 In English.
Publisher's description: Features dolls by 15 avant garde Japanese artists, in over 80 full-size color photos. The modern era of underground dollmaking in Japan began in the late 1960s with the experiments of Simon Yotsuya and Nori Doi. Directly inspired by the Surrealist Doll constructed by Hans Bellmer in 1932, Yotsuya created a series of life-sized dolls, featured in his ground-breaking 1973 Eve In The Past And The Future exhibition in Tokyo. This inspired a new wave of avant-garde Japanese doll-making, headed by Ryo Yoshida and Katan Amano, and continues to flourish today.
