The Book of Kimono
by Yurio Yamanaka

From the dust cover:
A practical guide to selecting, wearing and choosing accessories for a kimono, with tips on care and preservation, and a brief history of Japan's traditional garment. This practical and attractive book makes available for the first time the basic knowledge and vocabulary needed to select and put on a kimono and obi. Whether for women or men, all kimono are cut and sewn essentially from a single pattern, but a number of variations must be considered, depending on the occasion. Guidelines are given to making these choices, and the way to dress in a kimono, from the preliminaries to tieing the bustle sash, is described in detail and fully illustrated.
