Overview

Japanese Woodblock Kimono Designs in Full Color by Dover

The delicate beauty of the kimono and its appealing designs embody Japan's ancient and venerable tradition of textile arts. This unusual design treasury recaptures the graceful art of the kimono in all its subtle elegance, with authentic designs from a nineteenth-century source.
Reproduced directly from a rare and costly original portfolio, these luminous designs include allover patterns, nature scenes, magnificent floral sprays, and other finely detailed motifs. Sixty-two lavish full-color illustrations offer a vibrant resource of inspiration and browsing pleasure to devotees of fashion, art, and Asian culture.
