The cherry blossom is a symbol of evanescent beauty in Japan, and its soft pink colorations have been explored countless times by Japanese artists throughout history. Featuring the work of Kyoto kimono design masters, this volume offers splendid examples of the venerable cherry and its variants, with color swatches, line-drawn renderings, image reverses, and other treatments that breathe new life into old conventions.
