This is a beautiful book not often found in its slipcase with Japanese banner still intact. Box shows one bump ( see photo) with some creasing to front closed edge and a corresponding defect on the banner which was over the box when it received the damage. The slipcase is quite sturdy with no bumps and no splits to extrmities. It has protected the lovely ecru silky cloth binding. Introduction is in English, the rest in Japanese, but the art is contemporary and charming. Poti-Bokuru is the art of decorating the small enveloeps given as gifts in Japanese culture. The works are beautiful. View more info
