NAITO RYOJI. - [Gendai Katto Zuanshu].

Tokyo, Koransha Shoten 1931 (Taisho 6). Quarto publisher's decorated cloth (edges rubbed); title, hundreds of illustrations on 78 plates printed on one side, [4]pp. A used copy, a better than new copy. ¶ This pattern book of modern designs for vignettes, borders and other small cuts was rightly popular. First published in 1929 this is claimed as the 12th edition. This copy has been defaced or enhanced - you decide - by being extra-illustrated with every blank covered with cut outs from papers, magazines, brochures, packages and, I'm sorry to report, a couple of covers from the Shochikuza News. This has caused browning of many plates but, like me, you can choose to see this as exercises in tonal pattern or ignore it altogether. A good eye at work has made a damn good album of Japanese commercial art from the early thirties.
