Title: Japanese Kimono Fabric Sample Books. 6 Books. Mid to late 20th Century
Condition: Good - Very Good
A collection of six Japanese kimono fabric sample books, dating from the mid to late 20th century, and filled with hundreds of samples varying in size.
The samples are a dizzying array of various designs and textures, a few accentuated with gilt to boot. There are accompanying photos of the kimonos and designs against some of the samples.
6 fabric sample books in folio, 558 samples in total
These fabric books range in condition, from very good to good. There are varying degrees of foxing to each book, and empty spaces where some samples originally were present. There is also some creasing to two of the books, though not affecting the samples. Several samples have also come loose, and are still present on their respective page.
