Narita Inspected - Lopetz

I've been after this book quite a while, although it's rather irritatingly been out of print. Mostly it's been available second-hand at vastly inflated prices, so when I saw a copy going at a sane price, I jumped. And... it's great. It's a collection of work from various Japanese designers, and it's done by Buro Destruct. Hurray for nutty Swiss designers. Hurray for nutty Japanese designers. Hurray for when they get together. It's a wonderfully eclectic mix of design ideas and it's... nope, I don't have the words. It's very fun, though. And for some reason, it comes in a plastic case.
