    Hi fellas,
    Been busy this Chinese New Year season, pretty much kept away from doing scanlations (which i find really enjoyable to do)
    Anyway, I've been working on the LAST magazine for a while (home scanned) :slayer:
    hopefully would finish by end of the month.

    Meanwhile, I saw the recent thread on KOJI SUZUKI, so I am posting this article first, 8 pages long, nice content and pics...the interview mentions our very own Style Forum on the last page..... ENJOY! :smarmy:

    Does Kojo make bespoke last and trees from stratch or does he use pre made shape and alter it?
    Me think about this man a lot now,
    magazine print is very good.

    Keep up the good work!

    Once you've run out of source material, I can supply you with LAST magazine from volume 3 to it's final issue 13. :D

    LAST stopped publication, maybe two years ago and it's publisher 'Esquire' withdrew from the Japanese market.

    You might be able to find copies within the Japanese second-hand book market.
