[STENCIL PRINTS] OKAMURA Kichizaemon. ZAYÛ SANBÔ NO SHÔ, 3 vols. 32.2 x 20.4 cm. Privately published in 100 copies by Okamura, a remarkably talented and prolific artist and scholar, who recorded the arts and crafts of postWar Japan using the stencil techniques of katazome dyeing on beautiful washi hand-made paper. This set is very unusual, one of his most extensive and lavish productions. All three volumes are present, each signed, issued over the course of 1955 into 1956. Without the original clasped chitsu case with printed paper title label. Slight dustsoiling to the covers, else very good and very unusual.
