Complementing 300 reproductions of these tactile masterpieces are a unique history of the mediumtracing its roots from ancient China and Japan through Victorian England, the South Seas, Southeast Asia, and the Americas, and a step-by-step exploration of the tricky art of painting on this luxurious fabric.
