Synopsis

This book will take you on an unforgettable comic adventure through the colorful and cute imaginations of mid-century Japanese textile designers. Travel on the hem of fun and vibrant children's manga or illustration, translated into fabric designs. Over 300 images portray children, animals, and whimsical worlds, beautifully photographed to peak the interest of fabric collectors and historians, sewing enthusiasts, designers, and those who love all things Japanese. More than just an informative guide for collectors, this book paints a vivid portrait of Japanese childhood and explores the transformation of post-war Japan through changes in fabric design. Enlightening sections display images and themes, design layout and influences, design houses, and color trends. Additional chapters list manufacturers and provide photographs of their labels. A glossary of terms, care guide, and fabric resources round out this book. Whatever your interests, you'll love these magical prints and the worlds to which they'll transport you.
