Japanese Folio of Kimono Fabric Samples
- N.d., circa 1930. 37.5 by 28 cm. 36 panels with content, 16 of which have large swatches of fabric with floral, geometric, wave, foliage, butterfly and other motives, often combined in unusual, collage-like ways. The facing pages have loose line illustrations, sometimes heightened with silvery metallic sprinkles, that repeat some of the decorative element(s) of the fabric, such as a particular flower formation, or supplement it, as a fabric dominated by wavy formations has an illsutraiton of seaside birds and a paddle wheel on the opposite page. The front cover has a patchwork of various fabric designs as well. The book has a beautiful cohesion, and it is an object of beauty that transcends the lovely fabrics by themselves. Light wear to the outside boards.
