About This Item
Small quarto (11 1/2 X 8 inches) Japan: Getumeikai, 1959. First Edition. (5) 59 + (6) pages printed in Japanese and English on hand made Japanese vellum, with 26 individual fabric samples (25 are tipped in, the 26th sample is the cover material for the hardcover binding), plus a wood block print illustrating a woman in Japanese wardrobe working at a hand loom. Number 180 of a limited edition of 200. Housed in an ink blue stiff folder with bone ties. At the bottom of each page is a description of the sample, its pattern, its weave, and its dye; in addition to a small woodblock illustration of the plant from which the fabric is derived. Very good condition.
"In selecting the sample fabrics for this little collection, I renewed afresh my pledge, which I hope is not merely a nostalgia for lost things, but a positive creation of the 'new' through a dedicated study of the old."
