Santa Barbara: International Netsuke Society, 2004. Item #36
This book is a treasury of miniature poems and miniature sculptures, enhanced by perceptive comments from some of the world's leading scholars.
Both of these unique art forms, poetry and netsuke, achieved their pinnacles of excellence in the culture of Japan, but they no longer are exclusively Japanese. During the 29th century, they evolved into truly international art forms of remarkable beauty and interest, and they now are greatly admired throughout the world.
