This book is seriously amazing. It’s like getting access to the best denim museum in the world. You should also visit the discussion thread on the Superfuture – Superdenim forum. I think that Michael Allen Harris has been posting numerous updates and additional pictures to the discussion thread.

Lightning magazine are releasing another denim book this month. I’ll be visiting Japan next month, but I doubt I’ll be doing much shopping. The Australian dollar has collapsed compared to the Japanese yen… I might be able to afford this book.
