SEKKA, KAMISAKA:
Senshoku Zuan Kairo (One Hundred Patterns of Waves). Kyoto, Unsôdô, Meiji 38 (1905).

Original paper-covered boards, printed title in silver on upper cover.

Contains 96 sophisticated abstract designs inspired by the subject of waves. Occasionally a few small stains but overall a crisp and clean copy. Sekka initially worked in the traditional Rinpa style founded in the 17th century (and later developed into Neo-Rinpa style) and after a visit to Europe in 1901, he was also clearly influenced by the Art Nouveau style. Many of his works display a fusion of traditional Japanese and contemporary Western design concepts. His exclusive design works were produced by the renowned publishing company Uns›d› in Kyoto. At this time, the Japanese textile industry boomed and a growing demand for new designs was aroused. The publishers collaborated with talented artists to produce this kind of design manual.

The exotic colourful designs featuring floral and figurative motifs became enormously popular among the wealthy samurai and merchant classes. Production of domestic sarasa began in the late 1600s when skilled Japanese dye workers found a method to replicate the designs of Indian calicos. Seika Yamaga (1885-1981) was a weaving master active in Kyoto. An impressive and attractive work presenting a huge selection of striking abstract geometric and animal design. Published by the renowned printing company Uns›d› in Kyoto.
