Shin Zuko - Impressive woodblock printed design book by Hakamada Sekka
[Japan] Wonderful folding book (orihon) containing an impressive range of 30 large, colour woodblock printed designs. The title translates to something like, 'Thoughts on New Designs'. This is the first volume only. The National Diet Library of Japan also has only this volume.
Kyoto. Uchida Bijutsu Shoshi. 1936.
34pp. 31.1 x 22.1cm.
In good condition. Covers worn with some chipping at edges of paper covering. One page is separated at edge so the book is in two parts (this is easily repairable at cost). Most pages have been reinforced at folding edge. One page near the beginning starting to separate. A few marks at edge of some illustrations. Otherwise very good. b33070987
