This rich array of exquisite designs includes all the most popular Japanese motifs. Ferocious dragons with scaly skins, cranes with spread wings, tigers, phoenixes, and peacocks abound; so do lush peonies and many other flowers, plants, and animal designs. Geometric, abstract, and other patterns are also included. More than 130 dazzling, royalty-free images - reproduced from rare 19th-century portfolios - are ideal for direct use in art and craft projects. They will also serve as a wonderful source of inspiration for any design work calling for authentic Japanese flavour.
