The Legend Of Harajuku Goro's Vol 1
|World Photo Press
Through numerous photographs of gorgeously crafted pieces, this book showcases Goro Takahashi’s fascination with Native American lore and the image of the Wild West. For more than 40 years, he has been hand-crafting accessories such as belts, necklaces, bracelets, bags and medallions, and his eagle and feather designs, learned and honed over many years of living with the Navajo, are highly sought after – and only available at Goro’s single store in Tokyo. Silver, gold, turquoise, leather and beads are just some of the materials in this storied anthology of outstanding dedication, love and skilled craftsmanship, accompanied by biographical texts and anecdotes.
