BAPE Archives by Nigo book released
On April 1st, BAPE released a new book “BAPE ARCHIVES BY NIGO”. The book has been released worldwide, and can be purchased at any of the BAPE stores. The previous book released by BAPE was “A Bathing Ape” and was published in 2008 by Rizzoli. While the first book focused on all of the different BAPE products and collaborations up until 2008, the BAPE Archives book focuses on the items that you didn’t see in stores. It is a behind the scenes look at what A Bathing Ape is all about. All of the items featured in the book have been selected by Nigo himself from the perspective of both a maker/designer and also as a collector. There was an autograph signing session for the book in Tokyo on April 1st, 2012. If you missed that one, don’t worry; there is another autograph session taking place in Kyoto on April 13th, 2012.
