“High-quality color photographs and period pictures illustrate this sumptuous volume, which should interest experts and laymen alike.” – Choice.
Quintessentially Japanese, the kimono today is is worn in Japan for weddings, funerals, New year, and other ceremonies, and still holds a special place for the Japanese. The 150 stunning Japanese kimonos in the Montgomery Collection featured in this publication were created in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The book traces the history of the kimono and illustrates the variety of colors, techniques, and design used in creating this beautiful and symbolic garment. This book has been reprinted on the occasion of a US tour of the exhibition “Fashioning Kimonos,” which will travel to more than 5 venues across the US from 2008 to 2010.
