Recently, we have been working again with the Folio Society, fresh after the release of the beautiful Birds of Paradise, on our next facsimile, Japan: described and illustrated by the Japanese. The original edition dates back to 1897, of which the Rylands holds number 496 of 700 copies. The 10 volume set contains over 500 hand-tinted original photographs, as well as 10 paintings depicting various legends and Japanese traditions. A great detailed look can be found here.
As with the Birds of Paradise volume, the Japanese facsimile will be presented slightly differently, this time in 2 volumes, with a beautiful binding by Neil Gower. Check Joe Whitlock-Blundell from the Folio Society’s blog for updates on production.
