This treasury of elegantly detailed designs and popular motifs draws on centuries-old Japanese art traditions and the serenity of nature for its stunning black-and-white images. Selected from a periodical called Artistic Japan, originally published in London in 1888 and 1889, the collection features a fascinating array of reproducible, royalty-free art.
The beautiful renderings include lush cherry blossoms, enchanting geishas, lute players, tea ceremonies, decorative fans, playful crickets and geckos, swooping hawks, galloping horses, fish and ducks swimming in a pond, a garden of irises, and more. An invaluable reference for designers and crafters, Artistic Japan will inspire new patterns for everything from wallpaper to needlework.
