9789074822367: Identifying Japanese Dolls: Notes on Ningyō

Lea Baten's unique and resourceful book assists in the identification of the familiar and unfamiliar figurines known as ningyo, and explores the roots of the word itself. This book not only identifies and describes ningyo, detailing their history and meaning, but also contains a comprehensive index and one of the most extensive bibliographies on the doll motif ever published in English. Scholarship, clear illustrations, and a touch of humour guarantee a fresh and original approach to known and unknown ningyo.
