For centuries, the kimono has remained one of the most beautiful and enduring images of traditional Japan. Renowned for their elegance, the lovely silk robes are embellished with motifs that reflect the strong ties between Japanese art and nature. In this lavishly illustrated collection, 150 full-color photographs and prints depict a vibrant array of traditional kimonos and the wide sashes called obis. Cranes in flight, leaping waves, and a magnificent array of blossoms are just the beginning. Derived from two rare and costly portfolios, these royalty-free images represent Japan's ancient and esteemed tradition of textile arts. A wonderful source of ideas for designers, they will enchant devotees of fashion, art, and Asian culture.
