In the West, dolls are the very symbol of childhood, designed to be cuddled. and played with, dressed and undressed, pampered, and finally packed away or, for the rare lucky doll, displayedwhen their owners reach adulthood. In Japan, by contrast, dolls are the ultimate showpiece for the traditional crafts master woodworkers, weavers, lacquer artists, painters, and metalworkers all demonstrate their genius in these remarkable works of art. Exhibited in glass cases or brought out from storage once a year during the Boys' Day festival or hina festival, these sophisticated art objects seem designed to take the breath away, to entrance and bewitch with their beauty, to provoke the envy of those who own none, in short to be the "playthings" of adults more than of children. Strong is the person who dares play with these seemingly priceless treasures and stronger still is he who can resist their charms. Luckily for the collector, dolls are one of the few Japanese antiques that have survived the ravages of time ; fine-quality, vintage dolls are still available and at affordable prices. All that has been missing is information on their history, varieties, identification, evaluation, and care. Japanese Antique Dolls, the first book in English devoted to the subject, offers this and much more. An array of striking color plates (printed in large format to allow for close scrutiny) illustrates every major variety of doll from the first talismanic paper dolls, which were invested with the power to absorb evil influences, and the primitive wooden kokeshi dolls, little more than a cylinder with a sphere fora head, up to the complex mechanical dolls powered by whalebone to serve tea or bow and the exquisite sets portraying the imperial household and their possessions ox carts, folding screens, lacquer dishes, and myriad other accessoriescrafted in miniature.

In this volume Mr. Bushell speaks primarily to the experienced collector, to the connoisseur, presenting discoveries, insights, and opinions derving from some two decades of research and finding cogent answers to some of the questions that have perplexed the netsuke world.

"Rikka" or standing, upright flowers is the basis of flower arrangement. Almost all of the present forms of Ikebana owe their origin to Rikka, which was perfected five hundred years ago. This is not just a guide book for anyone interested in Ikebana. This is the complete book on Rikka.

Message from the Author: "After trying for some time to design original greeting cards, I finally designed some unique pop-up cards by folding and cutting paper. These cards were so popular among my friends and now I would like to introduce them to you in this lovely book. When you open one of these folded post-card sized constructions, there is wondrous movement and a structure arises which is so interesting and fascinating that it captures your attention. The dreamy scene created by light and shadow invites you to a fantasy world. Please try to make these unique cards by yourself by reproducing and developing shapes and spaces within folded paper twice as big as a post card. There are limitless possibilities in this art. Should you fail, do not give up. Remember that failure is the best teacher. There are three kinds of construction in this book. Two of them are made with a single sheet of paper. Of these two forms, one is not meant to be opened at all and the other is to be opened to an angle of 90 degrees. These two forms are fairly simple and easy to make. Cards which are to be opened to an angle of 180 degrees are a little more difficult but they are well worth trying. To make this kind of card, cut and assemble the parts into the required form, and attach it onto the foundation paper with thread. When these cards are opened, a three-dimensional form emerges before your eyes. The unfolding process is unexpected and even if you try to draw a diagram or think about it, you may find it difficult to understand the mechanism. Some cards do not need to be unfolded. they look three-dimensional without opening. Imagination helps achieve this effect. I do hope that boys and girls will foster their creativity through making these cards and that they will become fine architects in the future. I am thinking of spending my leisure after retirement making and playing with these cards." - Masahiro Chatani

During the Tokugawa and Meiji periods (1603-1912), miniature sculpture of a special type was born. It is called netsuke."
