Synopsis: Almost everyone is familiar with origami, the art of paper folding, but kokigami is a cock (er, bird) of an entirely different feather. The first definitive instructional guide to this ancient Japanese art, KOKIGAMI brings to life—quite literally—this most mysterious practice from the Orient. Written specifically for Westerners, KOKIGAMI contains 14 beautiful little paper costumes that are a delight to make and a rare pleasure to use. The authors' writings on the history and lore of the art will intrigue anyone interested in Japanese paper arts, and the costumes themselves will fascinate and inspire those eager to add new and exciting dimensions to their intimate relationships.
From the Hardcover edition.

Book Description Ten Speed Press, Berkeley, CA, 1989. Paperback. First Edition USA [1990], so stated. First Printing indicated by a complete numerical sequence. Very Good in Wraps: shows indications of careful use: slight spine lean; light wear to extremities; mild rubbing to the wrapper covers; a barely discernible crease near the lower rear corner; the binding remains perfectly secure; the text is clean. Free of any ownership names, dates, addresses, notations, inscriptions, stamps, bookplates, or labels. Structurally sound and tightly bound, showing no flaws beyond a little mild wear: remains close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 4to. (11 x 8.5 x 0.25 inches). 64 pages. Weight: 11 ounces. Trade Paperback. Almost everyone is familiar with origami, the art of paper folding, but kokigami is a cock (er, bird) of an entirely different feather. The first definitive instructional guide to this ancient Japanese art, KOKIGAMI brings to life—quite literally—this most mysterious practice from the Orient. Written specifically for Westerners, KOKIGAMI contains 14 beautiful little paper costumes that are a delight to make and a rare pleasure to use. The authors' writings on the history and lore of the art will intrigue anyone interested in Japanese paper arts, and the costumes themselves will fascinate and inspire those eager to add new and exciting dimensions to their intimate relationships. This book is dedicated to the intimate art of the little paper costume. This is not origami and is closer to paper dolls. The book is nicely laid out and the introduction maintains the illusion of this being a true ancient artform. What is the artform? Well, it is to cut out and assemble little costumes or disguises to be placed over the erect male member.The costumes range from a pig (as pictured on the cover) to a space shuttle. Most of the book is taken up with the heavy printed pages that comprise the parts of the costumes. If you were to actually go ahead with one of these constructions, the directions are quite simple and clear. First Edition USA [1990], so stated. First Printing indicated by a complete numerical sequence. Seller Inventory # 48345
