We are downsizing our personal collections and have a number of specialty books we'd like to make available to customers before offering them elsewhere. Many of these books are of the 'gift-book' living room table display type -- high quality imprints variety, large over-sized books with many pictures etc about a specialty topic. With the exception of one book (Fine Art of Textiles) all of these books relate to traditional Japanese arts and culture, particularly about textiles, kimonos etc. A good number of them are classics in the field of Japanese textiles, kimonos and design and are out of print.
