"Naoko Matsubara is an internationally renowned woodblock artist whose works hang in such distinguished settings as the White House, the United Nations, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and Vienna's Albertina Collection. (In this book, Kyoto's) shrines and temples are prominently featured, but Matsubara gives equal emphasis to (its) cultural role. The Kabuki theater and geisha dancing, No drama and rollicking street festivals are all splendidly brought to life by her bold lines and her exquisitely Japanese sense of color. The pictures are complemented by the perceptive text of Bunsho Jugaku, an authority on handmade Japanese paper." Light vertical waviness to free front endpaper, light toning to edges of half-title page. Dust jacket has price-clipped and has very minor edge wrinkling. Slipcase has light toning to some edges.
