LOVE WORLD

128 pg
ISBN: 978-4-401-62265-8

This photobook is a collection of the photographs from Ai's B-PASS Magazine column, 大塚 愛のLOVE WORLD 〜eye love pictures.〜. Taken and/or directed by Ai, these photos follow the theme of 'Woman' (and presumably 'Love,' as well, based on the title) through the red-light districts and poorer areas of Bangkok, Thailand.

Interesting. Where can you preorder to get the postcards? Amazon and Shinko only?

Thanks for the news! I just bought her first photobook a few weeks ago.

This one will be interesting, and apparently more mature...

I'm planning on pre-ordering it from Amazon Japan once I get my paycheck. I looked up the total amount of the item + international express shipping charges[¥3000], which is the only shipping method available for outside Japan addresses, I think, and the total price came up to ¥5,667. Can someone please tell me how much that is in US Dollars? I'm guessing around $60.

It's actually about $49 US.
So, not *as* bad. Wink

I hadn't realized that Amazon had decided to only offer express shipping for international orders. No
I never had a problem with the economy shipping in the past--it was safe enough, imo.
Argh. Mad

Well, hopefully other, more reasonably-priced options will surface. Nod

The cover is really beautiful. <3 And her photos look quite professional. Shocked
