Appearance in Magazines/E-zines


Jun Kusanagi has released five hardcover photobooks (shashinshu) in her career. She appeared in her first photobook Queen Bee as Narua Asami then in the Kubire series as Jun Kusanagi. She also put out her 'final' photo book - simply entitled Jun - under this name (however, she has since released another book, Dangerous Curve, also as Jun). She has also made appearances in several various models photo books. Like most Japanese photo books there is hardly any text, and most of that is in both Japanese and English. Each contains roughly one hundred pages, all with photographs (including several double-page spreads). They are roughly A-4 sized, and printed with thick, glossy stock - top quality stuff all round.
