Living Crafts of Okinawa – Photos by Tsune Sugimura – Text by Hisao Suzuki


A dynamic photographic documentation of the traditional folk artists and craftsmen of Okinawa–traditions that survived the ravages of war and occupation but not the changing interests of the young. The text provides a concise introduction to Okinawan culture and history which demonstrates not only the tragedy of Okinawa’s past but also its rare achievement in the field of folk crafts. Silk-bound hardcover in dust jacket.

A hardcover ex- library edition with unclipped, illustrated dust jacket, burnt orange cloth boards, dark red spine and design on the front cover with orange lettering.  There is a “withdrawn from library” stamp on the title page. There is a clear plastic cover to minimise damage. There is some foxing and toning throughout but the text, colour and black and white illustrations are clear and legible. Tissue guards separate the photographs. There is a previous owner’s stamp on the title page and a blue ink inscription.

A beautiful book.
