VINTAGE ROCK T BOOK!「Noirshirt」出版のお知らせ

VINTAGE ROCK T BOOK! Publication of "Noirshirt"

Photobook of vintage rock t-shirts will be published on August 7th.

Actually, production started about two years before the store opened.

After that, I was forced to postpone due to the influence of the coronavirus, and finally I was ready to publish.

From August 7th to 9th, we will be participating in a publication event at LABORATORY/BERBERJIN®︎, so sales will start next week.

*See below for details on the publication event.

・Crowdfunding supporters

Thank you so much for all your support in this difficult situation!

・Everyone involved in the production

I can only say that you are a professional.

This would not have been possible without your help. You have created a wonderful book!


Thank you. Finally. I look forward to working with you!

 From here on, we will be announcing publication events.

“ Noir gallery” titled


Seeing the “Frustration” Rock T-shirt with your own eyes

We have decided to display the shop as if it were a gallery, and sell



T-shirts from the first day of publication

World's first

where you can actually see all of them and purchase T-shirts excluding some complete exhibits

It will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Lastly, I would like to explain the concept of the photobook.

⚫︎T-shirt rules

⚫︎ Why is it black?

The composition of the photobook we were thinking of was a trilogy.

"White", "Black" and "Multi".

First of all, the band T-shirt standard color

I came up with the idea of ​​making a black and white photobook,

I started working on a "black" photo book, which is especially difficult to extract and compose.

Technology to print on T-shirts and create strong colors at low cost

It was generally distributed from the late 80's to the early 90's,

Of course, T-shirts before that had a high percentage of non-black bodies that were easy to color.

Good design from a low black body in proportion to the total amount,

It is quite difficult to choose rare items.

The vintage rock T-shirt at the time

Most of them were made with as little money as possible

However, "Anyway, apply a thick layer of ink to develop color"

``Spending money to develop color with advanced technology''

"Make it even if the color is not good"

"Express with felt instead of print"

The black T-shirt released under

has a unique charm,

You can only taste that in vintage.

The first release will be a black body T-shirt, which is the highest hurdle in terms of composition.

⚫︎Why only possessions?

We publish a photobook and

I'm not going to finish it.

I would like you to actually see the "Agony" rock T-shirt posted.

Acquaintances for flexible handling of T-shirts,

Instead of soliciting leases from collaborators,

I have come to the decision that it should consist only of my possessions.

⚫︎ Why did you avoid the ones in the major photobooks?

We would like to say

A T-shirt with a design you've never seen before

I want you to see it, so

I basically omit what is published in other photobooks.

It is also published in the previous photobook

Things to be published in this photobook should be published

Only those that are judged to have an aura.
