BOOKS FOR SALE

These books are from the Shoin Collection - a set of 20 English/Japanese volumes, each focused on a different aspect of Japanese kimono. These books are out of print, and we've already sold out of several of the volumes (sorry). They are excellent references for collectors - get 'em while you still can!

We also have dozens of other kimono, Kyoto, and Japanese culture-related books in our reference library. Click here to see the ones we recommend, each with a direct link to amazon.com in case you'd like to purchase them.
