Appendix: 2 posters (1 double-sided poster)
March 2005 issue of Japan's Boon magazine including a NIGO cover-story, which contains some iconic images of the multi-hyphenate. You will probably recognize these images from numerous archive pages and moodboards. Also contains special BAPE posters. One side of the oversized poster features a pin-up photo of Mayuko Iwasa in a bathtub, the other shows a world-map with all the BAPE store locations at the time and a calendar underneath.
The magazine also features a manga chapter of Santa Inoue's Tokyo Tribe 2, reports on the hottest brands and select shops, asks certain select shops for their recommendations, presents 72 t-shirts and much more. A grail of a magazine.
Condition is used, with a few bent corners and some scratches on the bottom right side of the cover. Fortunately the scratches blend in with the cover and are not visible at first glance.
