Published in 1953, this book is a collaboration between the legendary bakushi Toshiyuki Suma (aka Minomura Ko and Kita Reiko) and photographer Tetsuzo Tsukamoto. It represents the first artistic photo album of bondage published in Japan. Produced by the publisher of Kitan Club magazine, 美しき縛しめ was a limited release of only 500 copies, making it very difficult to find.
