|This is an collection of katazome designs dated Early Showa ( 1920-1930s ) . The katazome, literally, stencil-dyed papers and this book must be made by somebody collecting designs used for kimono and pasted individual katazome papers onto this thick book. There are amazing 181 katazome designs which have nature, abstract ( there are 2 designs on women ) and 41 among 181 are designed in kimonoThere are 49 printed pictures which must have been cut off from magazines. Because of use and how they are folded, some colors are transferred to next pages and there are some stains, patina, edges are worn especially the designs of kimono, also every sample is glued on the sheets, so the areas where they are glued have some flaws, but they will be great material reference for designs. Size of book 11.75 " H x 17.50" W x 1.5 " Thick ( 29.8 cm H x 44.5 cm W x 3.8 cm Thick ) * Because there are too many beautiful designs, please let us know if you would like to see additional photos !!!|
