Synopsis: In this 261 page book, Miriam Kinsey takes a detailed look at the contemporary art of Japanese netsuke. Contemporary netsuke has the integrity of the Japanese tradition in workmanship, beauty, and feeling, but is new in concept and its freedom of form and design. "In this unusual and engagingly written book, she traces the historical background of the art and goes on to examine its current state, at the same time providing a basic knowledge that every collector needs concerning authenticity, workmanship, and materials along with a wealth of information on subject matter, techniques, scholarly interest, and investment. Over 110 signatures and brief biographies of present-day netsuke and okimono carvers are included and there are close-up studies of 27 leading artists. Among the nearly 200 illustrations are 108 photographs in full color, by Tomo-o Ogita, 51 in black and white, by Tsune Sugimura, a photo essay showing the creation of a netsuke, and numerous sketches picturing legendary themes. A comprehensive list of dealers, a bibliography, and a glossary-index complete this authoritative, thorough, and lively introduction to one of the oldest and newest of Japan's living arts."
