The full title of this book is Kimono, Vanishing Tradition: Japanese Textiles of the 20th Century and is has been called "the bible of vintage kimono" by collectors and vendors alike.

From the dust jacket:

Kimono is a generic term for traditional Japanese clothing; it means "thing to wear". This book provides an overview of some traditional garments, introduces types of designs found in twentieth century kimono that are still available, and presents wearable art inspired by kimono from contemporary artists. The text gives price ranges for items that would be reasonable in a store or gallery, and explains what to look for when collecting. As kimono disappear from Japanese wardrobes, they are becoming increasingly collectible. Each of the fourteen chapters opens with the definition of the type of apparel covered therein (including simple, everyday, formal, etc.) as well as their use in Japanese life.
