This listing is for a copy of
When Art Became Fashion: Kosode in Edo-Period Japan Hardcover – January 1, 1992
by Dale Carolyn Gluckman and Sharon Sadako Takeda

The book includes a program from the exhibit that inspired the book, signed by the museum's curators (see last photo).

From the dust cover:

"When Art Became Fashion" focuses on the kosode --harbinger of the modern kimono--and is published in conjunction with the L.A. County Museum of Art's exhibition of the exquisite robes.

From Library Journal Review:

"In another fine example of arts publishing from Weatherhill, six scholarly essays are interposed with illustrations of ...kosode (narrow-sleeved robes) at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. ... The work as a whole demonstrates the interplay among dyer, artist, craftsperson, and so forth, with Monica Bethe's strong essay explaining the special meaning of various colors in Japanese costume and how they were (and are) culturally linked."
