39.1 x 31.1cm portfolio enclosed in a publisher's box with printed paper title label. 12 reproductions of stenciled views of Kyoto, oban size, C. 1979-80. The prints are approx 23 x 30.8cm and are tipped in individually on each sheet with the title underneath the work in Japanese. Includes a sheet with title printing in the center and a 37.6 x 29.8cm folded brochure in Japanese text, with an introduction by the head of the company that published it, as well as a description of each print on the facing page. A chronological bio of the artist is on the rear.

Inagaki Toshijirō 稲垣稔次郎 (1902-63) was declared a Japanese Living National Treasure for his career as a stencil artist and scholar, as well as a designer of many wonderful fabric designs done in his inimitable fashion. Though his output of fabric designs and the like was formidable, and he published many woodblock sheet prints though Mikumo, he did very little in the way of book design or illustration. This lovely collection of katazome 型染 stencil print designs, here beautifully reproduced in full size, was published as a keepsake for the 70th anniversary of the pharmaceutical company, Shinyaku, KK (Nippon Shinyaku Co., Ltd. 日本新薬株式会社).

Light foxing to the brochure and title slip-on box. In good condition overall. Complete.
