"Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg accounts for the first serious survey of the famed Japanese artist's work. Through various essays and illustrations, many of which were previously unpublished, the book traces Murakami's career from training, to his current studio practice."
"Through essays and illustrations it explores the artist's relationship to the tradition of Japanese painting and his facility in straddling high and low, ancient and modern, Eastern and Western, commercial and high art."
-Hamptons Art Hub
