About This Item

Japan No place, no date (circa 1930). Two quarto volumes, publisher's boards with title labels, cloth tie stabbed binding. Boards of second volume with surface insect damage; internally fine. Fifteen color plates in each volume on 12 and 15 card leaves, respectively, with tissue guards. The sample volumes are apparently a commercial production for a rural textile manufacturer with design examples for katsuri, Japanese ikat textiles. Ikat techniques developed in present-day Okinawa in the 12th or 13th centuries and were introduced into Japan by 1750, spreading into rural areas. Mounted color plates; the patterns are applied on flat backgrounds by a stencil process with textured high relief paints with a relief pattern.. Boards. About Fine. 4to.
