A Mirror of Japanese Ornament: 600 Traditional Designs
Rendered from a rare 1915 five-volume set, this all-encompassing design treasury captures the graceful beauty of traditional Japanese motifs. These 100 full-color plates-many with multiple images-range from ornate florals and elegant cranes to dragons and Buddhas, and from Silk Road imports to Edo-style textile patterns. A veritable grammar of Japanese ornament, this compilation includes an Introduction, Chronology, and Bibliography, as well as captions translated from the original Japanese notes. In addition to their applications for fabric and wallpaper designs, these vivid royalty-free images are ideal for a tremendous variety of graphics projects, and are, in addition, a treat for connoisseurs of Japanese art.
