About this product
- DescriptionIn this beautifully written and lavishly illustrated book Liza Dalby traces the history of the kimo - its designs, uses, aesthetics and social significance. The colourful and stylised kimo, the national garment of Japan, expresses t only Japanese fashion and design taste but also reveals something of the soul of Japan, and is seen by many as a symbol for all that is Japanese - simplicity, elegance and beauty. Amazingly beautiful, the kimo has gone through many changes in the centuries since it was first imported from China, changes that reflect the way that Japanese society has also developed over the ages.
- Author BiographyLiza Dalby is an anthropologist specialising in Japanese culture and the only Westerner to have become a geisha. She is the author of The Tale of Murasaki, Geisha and consulted on Steven Spielberg's film of Memoirs of a Geisha. She lives in California with her husband and three children.
