Quantity: 1 available


Very handsome exhibition catalog published to accompany an exhibit at the Barry Davies Gallery from June 12-25, 1993. The book is clean and tightly bound with no names or wriitng and no bumps to boards. Only faults are two small tears to top of spine which almost disappear in brand new mylar cover. Book is oversized at 9" x 13" and printed on quality coated paper. Beautifully illustrated throughout with large full page photographs in color of each of the 100 items, as well as descriptions in English. Inro is a very specific art which sprang up due to the lack of pockets in kimonos. Small containers which hung on the obi were able to keep small items in nesting compartments. Very beautiful objects.
