The first thing that ended up in my bag in Jimbocho wasn't a book but an old record. I didn't know 1910 Fruitgum Company at all, I just liked the label and the design. Very seventies.
I did get curious about it as I got home. There is really nothing you can't find on YouTube. This is the band and the song in question.
This is a book relating the adventures of some captain in Hokkaido. The cover and pages are perfectly aged. I'm going to use this one for an altered book, probably painting over some of the drawings even though they are quite nice.
My favourite comic store was gone but I found this interesting Tarzan comic, quite politically incorrect inside, but they could get away with that in the 50's. The other one is a magazine for housewives.
A bunch of loose book covers from that messy store. Love them. I wanted red instead of yellow but it wasn't the day for red, apparently.
Sheet music for the Tennessee Waltz by Redd Steward and Pee Wee King. Too many gems in that cover, a present from me to me.
A movie magazine (1960).
This is a long accordion book inside a bookcase which I'm also going to alter in some way, at some point. I love the closing system with the two hooks.
Well, that's it for this trip to Jimbocho. Very happy about my findings. Now I need to start making something with them. Like chopping them up :-)
