Books Info:

Taisho Kimono free pdf This book offers a unique collection of 130 kimono for women, men and children from the Taisho era. The Taisho period (1912-1926) saw the birth of a remarkable liberal and modernistic cultural movement, which lasted until the outbreak of World War II. However, at the same time, traditional arts and crafts remained deeply rooted in Japanese society. Modernity and tradition are the two faces of the Taisho culture, and both are reflected in Japanese traditional dress.
