"YOHJI YAMAMOTO - My Dear Bomb" is the first ever published biography of the Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto. In this book, his life is unveiled in a radical and deeper way than ever before, through a short fiction while himself being tossed by his muses.

Also based on his sincere wish to pass on to younger generations, he gives a rich description on his key savoir-faire through a glossary of his technical generations with his hand drawings especially done for this book.
