Kazuhiko TajimaFlowers of Edo: A Guide to Classical Japanese Flowers

38.00 EUROS

Flowers of Edo features 100 illustrations from the historical botanical art book, Honzou-zufu, and breathes new life into this work from the Edo period of Japan. Honzou-zufu, published in 1828 by Kanen Iwasaki, was the first Japanese botanical encyclopedia with color which was valuable not only as an encyclopedia but also for its beautiful and refined drawings. It was comprised of 96 volumes and contained 2000 plants, which were sketched, colored and classified into three different categories (mountain plants, wet plants and poisonous plants). Because most of the volumes were transcribed, many existing illustrations were low in quality. But we have carefully researched and selected the best 100 illustrations from the Honzou-zufu and breathed new life into this historical botanical art book from the Edo period. To show all the illustrations without the center being folded, the book is design in landscape format, enabling the illustrations to be clearly seen in a page.
