In conjunction with a major retrospective at Asia Society Museum, ‘Nobody’s Fool’ is the first comprehensive monograph on the work of Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara. More than twenty years of paintings, sculptures, and drawings focus on themes of isolation, music, and rebellion — particularly in relation to punk and rock music — and youth subcultures worldwide. Finished in a hardcover diecut slipcase that mirrors one of Nara’s installations the book is literally “housed” in one of Nara’s works. 272 pages, 300 full-color illustrations, 5 essays.
