About the author (2006)

Anita Yasuda was (gasp) a girl who couldn't keep out of her local Sanrio Gift Gate. An avid collector of Japanese pop memorabilia from the 1970s, including textiles and anime, she made friends with Hello Kitty*R while a schoolgirl in Japan. She is the author of Japanese Children's Fabrics: 1950s-1970s and Japanese Anime Linens: 1970s to Present, both for Schiffer Publishing, Ltd.
