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

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.

YAMAGA, SEIKA (Ed.):

. Folio. Lvs. (26); (23); (25), interleaved. Japanese title and and colophon (four leaves), and seventy leaves with numerous woodblock printed designs of sarasa. Bound in the Japanese style. Original decorated paper covers, silk threads, paper title slips on upper covers (one loose). Indian sarasa (calico) was initially imported to Japan by the Portuguese seafaring traders in the early 17th century. 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.

TOZU YOSHIJIRÍ (SHIBANOTO SHITAKAGE):
[KIMONO DESIGNS] Ky›zome nishiki: tsuru-jirushu (Kyoto-style dye silk: crane symbols). Kyoto, printed by Okada Shinjir›, Meiji 30 (1897).
. A small-format zuan-chô (design) album with twenty wonderful woodblock-printed designs for Yűzen dyeing kimonos and haoris. Printed Japanese captions. Size: 24.5 x 16.6.cm. Contains ten leaves folded in the traditional Japanese fashion. Original paper wrappers decorated with printed cranes, title printed on front cover, colophon at end with ex-ownership seals, some light staining to covers. Manuscript label pasted on front wrapper, hand-written note and seal on lower cover. Insignificant tiny hole to last leaf. The artist Tozu Yoshirij› (pen name for Shibanoto Shitakage) was a Ky›ka poet and Yűzen textile artist at this time. Yűzen is a Japanese traditional technique used in the dyeing of Japanese kimono fabric. The method was invented during the Edo period in Kyoto. A similarly titled work with ky›zome designs by Furuya K›rin was published three years later (1900) by Uns›d› and Tozu's work also seems to have been published by Uns›d› in 1897. However, this book appears to be a popular precursor to the other two works. A lovely album, perhaps serving as a manual for kimono makers or produced to be appreciated and enjoyed for its own sake.
