5.0 out of 5 stars Great read for the Art history/WWII/Fashion enthusiast! 13 Jan. 2015
By Ms. Sarah K. Egan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Really stunning collection of works and a fascinating breadth of information, research and discussion! I came across this book while researching an antique hand pained haori and just had to add it to my collection! This is a really well rounded book drawing on many different perspectives and disciplines to discuss an incredibly specific element of Art history. Any WWII buff or Japanese art historian would be pleased to have this book in their collection, but I think it would prove an interesting read for people interested in the history of fashion, Japanese history, art history in general or even sociology. In addition to the content of the book being very interesting, the quality of the physical book and the images is superb.
5.0 out of 5 stars I have developed an intense interest in Japanese propaganda textiles and this book satisfied my growing knowledge 11 Nov. 2015

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This marvelous book is exactly what I was looking for. I have developed an intense interest in Japanese propaganda textiles and this book satisfied my growing knowledge, leading me to new sources as well. The art work is beautiful and the text is quite helpful in helping the reader to understand both where and how these textiles were used. Highly recommended for both the novice and the historian on the use of textiles for propaganda purposes

5.0 out of 5 stars A seminal work! 11 Jan. 2007
By Xenia Cord - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
An intensively researched, tightly written, extensively documented study of patriotic and propaganda textiles developed by the major players during WW II and the years immediately before it. The acknowledgements page alone reflects the author's interaction with many of the leading lights in textile research today. Highly recommended!
