Flower Baskets and Flower Carts Stunning, large woodblock printed book

With 16 lovely double-page woodblock prints mounted on thick card showing various floral arrangements in baskets and carts. The artwork is by Takeshita Kin'u. Bound accordion style and in original folding case. The Japanese title is 'Hanakago Hanaguruma'.

 

Kyoto, Uchida Bijutsu Shoshi. 1934. 40pp. 34.3 x 23.5 x 3.8cm.

 

In very good condition. Folding case has some wear, darkening, and the joints are starting to split (this can be repaired if required). The book itself is very good. Minor wear to covers and spotting on edges. Some tissue interleaves missing and the ones that remain are a bit spotted but have done a good job protecting the woodblock prints which are all clean and bright. b32010472
