Book Review: Medieval Japanese Textiles
- Tilte: (English translation) Medieval Japanese Textiles, (Japanese?) Senshoku : chusei hen

Periods: Heian to Momoyama? Unknown due to lack of english in the book.
Subjects: Historical Japanese Attire
My Thoughts: Tis book would be such a great resource, if only it were in english or translated. There is no english in this book at all, making it for a frustrating experience. At a glance I see many period textile examples including court wear and a heian ladies attire, I also see a stunning example of a Momoyama patchwork kimono that is very high fashion. There are a few color photos, and a few black and white ones. If someone could translate this book, it would be a great resource.
