Tokyo: Popeye, 1976. First Edition. Perfect bound quarto. The first issue of Popeye Magazine, published during the summer of 1976. The inaugural issue establishes the encyclopedic format that Popeye would continue through the present day. Popeye's Good Life focus would return again and again to similar themes covered in the first issue, including UCLA dorm life, surf and skate culture, and many other aspects of American youth culture. Illustrated throughout with color and black and white photography as well as drawings. Japanese and some English text. Rich fashion reference that eagerly catalogues Western subculture and street style from an observant Japanese perspective. Near fine in illustrated wrappers. Sharp copy.
