Some Japanese Flowers

A lovely example of Japanese binding this book has a two-piece case wrapped in 4-color printed Kasadaka stock with varnishing. The loose sheets are then bound using a custom dyed yellow string.

 

An original, deluxe edition of Kazumasa Ogawa’s 1896 book of hand-colored collotype prints in the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum is reproduced in this edition. Ogawa (1860–1929) was one of the most enterprising and important early photographers, technicians, and printers in Japan.
