This distinctive volume reveals a unique antique kimono collection through various delicate Japanese colours and their use in kimono. The main focus of this book is on the colours of kimono and obi, not their construction or how to wear them. Colours such as “coconut brown”, "horizon blue”, “cupid pink”, and “lamp black” suggest the ways in which Japanese textile artists perceive colours. The pictures on every page are in glorious colour to show the delicate colour combination of each kimono.Kimono collectors, textile design students, or anyone who appreciates beautiful things will appreciate this book.
