Details:

A cursory glance at the images and motifs in this collection, given the title, could perhaps lead a casual observer to believe that Japanese Art Deco was nothing more than a contrived knock-off of the genuine movement occurring in Western Europe and America. More

What's really happening here is quite different than that—to my eye many of the engaging qualities in Western Art Deco are vestiges of the late 19th-century, Modernist embrace of earlier Japanese art (think Van Gogh, Gauguin, Monet). That would make Japanese Art Deco a reclamation, not an appropriation. Whew! That said, all of the European motifs filtered and morphed by Japanese aesthetics make this a fascinating collection. Inside you'll find an encyclopedic array of 468 borders, spot illustrations, ornaments, flowers, landscapes, flappers, buildings, ships and great Gingko leaf motifs!
