Shuka - Lovely woodblock printed book with 72 designs edited by Sato Chuichi

[Japan] Very nice work containing 36 pages each with two woodblock printed designs most likely used for decorative envelopes. The 1920s were an especially interesting item in the evolution of Japanese design and this lovely book is a great example of this.

 

Kyoto. Bunseido. 1926.

 

36 leaves. 18.2 x 25.2cm.

 

In very good condition. Original decorative front cover has some abrasion probably from a sticker having been removed. Internally very good with only minor age wear. A few pages separated at edge. Original folding chitsu case in very good condition with original label intact. b33040936
