NOSHIGAMI - . - A sample book of Noshigami - special paper for gifts - from the Kakuya Dyeing Workshop, Tokyo.

Tokyo, 1931 (Showa 6). Octavo by size (230x165mm) stiff wrapper lettered by hand; 73 leaves of colour printed samples. ¶ Noshi-gami is specially printed paper to be folded and attached to gifts as I understand it. That traditional forms are maintained is clear but by now - 1931 - the influence of modernism, compared to the couple of earlier examples I've seen, is obvious in the bright, flat forms with simpler, bolder shapes and sharper contrasts.
