Kyoto: Korinsha Press & Co., Ltd, 1977. First edition. Hardcover. Folio. Unpaginated. Original string bound printed wrappers. Volumes housed in publisher's blue cloth portfolio, with gold lettering on front cover and two exquisite ivory clasps. Splendid compilation of 1451 fine color Kyoto patterns which boast of a thousand-year-old history in their use in Ise-style decorated paper of Suzuka. The patterns seen here have endured for centuries and have become part of the daily life of the people through their application to Japanese textile design. This publication contains the creative designs of the noted Kyoto fabric designer Kogaku Tomoaki, whose work is distinguished by a uniquely Kyoto sense of magnificence and pure elegance combined with a vivid rhythmic feeling. The artist has created decorative patterns using a combination of abstract painting and geometric designs. These patterns, with their new conception and limitless forms, express a new beauty of serene movement. Sticker at lower spine of volumes. Text in Japanese (Vols. 1 & 2) and English (Vol. 3). Portfolio, wrappers and interior in very good condition. vg. Item #33207
