Guest Book

Hinagata of hanten (short jacket) which is wood-block print. Hinagata is a sample design book and it was for customers when they make orders. The designs are stencil-dyed in the back of hantens which were worn by workers such as shop clerks, fish market workers, firemen and so on. This book is a remake of the original book as the ground paper had many damages so that the original design hantens were cut out and pasted on Japanese paper and newly bound. It has 62 hantens in different designs. The original book was published in Mie prefecture in June 1888. In good condition but some of hantens have moth holes and some white parts have color staining. 20.5cm x 28.5cm More photos are available by request.
