Dramatically colored and finely detailed, the kimono conjures all the elegance and refinement of traditional Japan. This beautiful book, another addition to the popular Images of Asia series, explores the history of the kimono from its antecedents 1,500 years ago, to the height of its splendor during the Momoyama and Edo periods, to contemporary versions by such designers as Kenzo and Issey. Included are chapters on kabuki robes, religious garments, and folk designs.
