Tsujigahana. The Flower of Japanese Textile Art.

New York: Kodansha International, 1985. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. The term tsujigahana refers to cloth dyed with a combination of tie dyeing and of hand painting. At times the cloth is further decorated with stenciled gold- or silver-leaf imprint or with embroidery. Tsujigahana is also the name used for all pattern-dyed cloth of the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries in Japan. In this book, not only is the beauty of tsujigahana reproduced but a Japanese scholar casts a penetrating light on the background, technique, and chronology of the art. Item #27435
