Japanese Textiles and Chinese and Japanese Objects of Art:The Collection of Louis E. Charnley, of New York, With Additions From Other Collections (Classic Reprint) Anderson Galleries
The first book to chronicle the golden age of Japanese bicycle design. Japanese bicycles have long been at the forefront of both competitive and recreational cycling-from top-flight racing bicycles to collectible custom fixed-gear frames. This comprehensive and stunningly illustrated book presents a fascinating overview of the most prolific and celebrated period of Japanese bicycle design, between the 1950s and the ´80s, when uniquely talented artisanal craftsmen produced some of the most iconic bicycles of the twentieth century. From the recognizable silhouettes of major manufacturers like Fuji, Panasonic, and Bridgestone to the rarest frames from artisanal builders like 3-Rensho or Nagasawa, Japanese bicycle designers dominated the cycling world and created machines that are still revered today. Illustrated with specially commissioned photographs of fully restored bikes, and supplemented with artifacts and ephemera from technical manuals to photography of the legendary Keirin racing circuits, this book is must-have for anyone with an interest in cycling and the phenomenon of Japanese design.

This beautifully illustrated survey examines the art and artists of the Edo period, one of the great epochs in Japanese art. Together with the imperial city of Kyoto and the port cities of Osaka and Nagasaki, the splendid capital city of Edo (now Tokyo) nurtured a magnificent tradition of painting, calligraphy, printmaking, ceramics, architecture, textile work, and lacquer. As each city created its own distinctive social, political, and economic environment, its art acquired a unique flavor and aesthetic. Author Christine Guth focuses on the urban aspects of Edo art, including discussions of many of Japan´s most popular artists--Korin, Utamaro, and Hiroshige, among others--as well as those that are lesser known, and provides a fascinating look at the cities in which they worked.
