Year Published: 1983
ISBN: None found, most likely due to being in Japanese
Language: Japanese, I saw nothing in english at all
Period: Heian to Muromachi, as the title suggests
Subjects: There are some interesting clothing items in photos that I have never seen before all through this book. Most interesting are a few pages showing what I think to be monks making and blessing silk - which means it is most likely the construction and creation of sympathy silk. Sympathy silk is made without killing the moth, its a very labor intense process and far more expensive but is the required silk for holy attire.
My Thoughts: This book frustrated me, its a great resource but is written in Japanese. I see a lot of interesting full color and detailed photos of period garb, but I really dont know what they are! There is a stunning selection of heian attire that simply must be documented.
