Seductive Espionage: The World of Yuki 7
About the book:
Fleet Street Scandal announces the release of their latest book: Seductive Espionage: The World of Yuki 7. Artist Kevin Dart invites you to discover his favorite movies featuring swinging 60’s spy girl, Yuki 7. Seductive, intelligent, and charming, Yuki romps through film after film, vanquishing villains while looking fabulous. Since these madcap movies exist only in his imagination, Kevin has brought Yuki’s world to life through a collection of original artwork, stories, and an animated trailer.
For their second book, Fleet Street brought together an all-star cast of artist friends to tell Yuki’s story. 14 artists render Yuki and her world in their own styles and mediums, filmmaker Stephane Coedel assembled Kevin’s film stills into an action packed trailer, and author Ada Cole imagines what the world said about Yuki 7 during her heyday. In true behind-the-scenes style, the book showcases international movie posters, props, production stills, magazine snippets and interviews, making-of stories, and film synopses.
With evocative names like A Kiss from Tokyo, Danger is a Female, Roman Rendezvous and To Catch a Temptress, these films will soon be among your favorites, too.
The book has a first edition run of 2,000 copies. 100 will be available as a Collector’s Edition with a slipcase, mini prints, and more. 72 pages, oversized soft cover. Also available is a Yuki 7 t-shirt featuring the French movie poster for A Kiss From Tokyo.
