Together with honeyee.com, A Bathing Ape founder NIGO will be releasing the book ‘Bape Archives by Nigo’. Taking a very personal approach, the founder and long time creative director of the brand presents his personal selection of favorite items that have released from Bape in the last 20 years. This is the second book by the brand, after having released one with Rizzoli for their 15th anniversary.
“In 2008 Rizzoli (New York) published the official archive book “A BATHING APE®”. If that book, which shows all of the signature piece, is the “A Side”; this “BAPE®ARCHIVES by NIGO®”, whose contents have been selected by me from my perspective as both a maker and a collector, is the “B Side” – a personal, underground archive.”
The book will release April 1, 2012.
