High Coup: Illustrations by Katsu Yoshida softback published by Kodansha printed in Japan 1986.
Yoshida was one of Japan's best-known illustrators the work reproduced in color and black and white from 1974 to 1985, and constitutes a rogue's gallery of cultural superstars. Rendered in Yoshida's nervous, nervy style are a wide-mouthed Elvis Presley; Rod Stewart almost lost in a red-and-yellow welter of Oriental-looking hieroglyphic slashes; artist M. C. Escher's head divided into six stacked portions; and a fleshy, brushy abstraction of actor Al Pacino. Yoshida maintains that he does not want to be considered an artist, but rather an illustrator. The publisher has obliged him with a suitably pulpy production that is hard to put down. Jacket shows some wear ro back as pictured with minor bent corner with text in English and Japanese. It's pretty insane. An all time fave.
