The sinuous body and enigmatic gaze of the Japanese dragon is revealed in the pages of this sumptuous book in over 250 illustrations, published here for the first time and rendered in Indian ink by the great master Horiyoshi III. Look for them flashing through the waters, perched on clouds, coiled about warriors or tigers, or drowsing lazily at the side of melancholy princesses. The Master of Irezumi has recreated an entire universe inspired by the symbols, myths and ancient traditions of Japanese culture and these come to life once more thanks to his unmistakeable and masterful interpretation.

Ryuki – Mysterious Dragons is a true voyage of discovery of Japanese dragons, In Japanese Ryu means dragon while Ki means extraordinary: Horiyoshi III has chosen  these two words and blended them to create a new one to celebrate this mystical otherworldly creature that owes its fame to so many stories and legends of Japanese folklore.

Ryuki – Mysterious Dragons is a sumptuous new volume to add to the series The Great Books on the Art of Tattooing: as always lovingly crafted, a true collector's item, designed to satisfy the needs of professional tattoo artists – as an inexhaustible source of ideas and inspiration – as well as lovers of Oriental tattoo, but also for anyone interested in the art, culture and traditions of Japan. Leafing through the pages the reader is immersed in the floating world, a magical realm with an unforgettable ambience, deftly outlined by one of the most charismatic and authoritative Japanese artists in the world.
