Foreword by Jane M. Farmer. Beautifully illustrated with color photographs on nearly every page. The author, well-travelled in Asia, offers "this text as a possible entry to further consideration of paper's uses in Asia. The text skims the surface, touching quickly on many cultures and many uses. There is a strong focus on Japan because paper culture there is more intact than anywhere else....In each individual culture there is more research to be done." (from the introduction) Includes a glossary and a bibliography.

This copy is bound in a particularly attactive unsigned full leather binding (modified sewn boards technique) with leather onlays most likely executed by Monique Lallier. Silk pastedowns and endpapers.
