Lea Baten's unique and resourceful book assists in identifying the familiar and unfamiliar figurines known as ningyo, and explores the roots of the word itself: both meanings, "doll' and "human shape," are associated with play and ritual, life and death. These dolls are not necessarily just play-things with pretty faces, but range from mass-produced trivial toys to true art pieces and imposing ceremonial ornaments. Materials vary: they can be made from stone, clay, paper and wood; or brocade, ivory, pearl and lacquer. Many of the enormous variety of ningyo may be considered pieces of an unsolved puzzle that are in danger of disappearing without ever having been totally understood in the West. This book investigates the numerous meanings of the "human shape" in Japanese culture, from pre-history to the present, and explores the many, varied and subtle connotations ningyo have for the Japanese. This book not only identifies and describes ningyo, detailing their history and meaning, but also contains a comprehensive index and one of the most extensive bibliographies on the doll motif ever published in English. Scholarship, clear illustrations and a touch of humor guarantee a fresh and original approach to known and unknown ningyo.

Get an inside look at Japanese kokeshi dolls: their skilled makers, the devastation their home region has faced and a travel guide so you can get up close to these beloved pieces. Kokeshi are the simple and charming traditional Japanese dolls, characterized by their cylindrical shape and lack of arms and legs, carved from wood that are historically made in Japan's remote northern region of Tohoku. Crafted individually by artisans in bucolic mountainous villages, no two dolls are the same, and their imperfections are one of the appealing aspects of this folk craft. Though they began as children's toys made from scraps of wood, kokeshi dolls have become a popular collector's item and have even inspired manga and anime characters. This comprehensive guide by kokeshi expert Manami Okazaki tells everything there is to know about kokeshi dolls--from history to production methods and types of dolls to current trends. Through interviews with artists, gorgeous photos and firsthand travel experience, Okazaki presents detailed information about both traditional and modern syles of dolls being crafted today. This comprehensive survey includes: A guide to visiting Japan's most-famous kokeshi regions Information on how to buy the dolls--either directly from the Japanese makers or stockists worldwide The work of 2 U.S.-based kokeshi artisans Interviews with leading Japanese craftsmen Answers to common questions about kokeshi An exploration of the cultural significance of these dolls How they've become a sort of mascot for their devastated home region of Fukushima

Embodying an intricate blend of pattern and color, texture and composition, the Japanese kimono is a stunning garment with origins dating back to the Nara period (645?794). Its history is rich in tradition, culture, and art. Drawing her inspiration from the 18th- and 19th-century Japanese woodblock prints by such masters as Utamaro and Hiroshige, designer and fashion historian Ming-ju Sun has created this exotic collection of 26 exquisite costumes with two charming Japanese dolls to model them. The kimonos display a broad range of lovely fabrics ? from simple, practical cottons to luxurious silks and satins ? and a variety of traditional decorative elements ? geometrics, florals, stripes, checks, plaids, animals, landscapes, Japanese characters, and circular crests. All are sensitively illustrated with clean line and lush color in the style of Japanese woodcuts. This entertaining and educational paper doll collection will be a favorite with children and collectors. As a full-color survey of the Japanese kimono as an art form, the volume will be valued by costume designers, students of the history of fashion, and the many people fascinated by Japanese art and culture.
