Dear Shaded Viewers,
You will have to take my word for it because my images are really out of focus, these fabrics and designs were so beautiful you almost wanted to cry. I have the catalogue, you could order one too.
The Samurai were beyond words too. Here is a link to an Oj Hofer, a shaded viewer's article, dating back to when the artful warriors were exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum in NYC.
Nothing like these costumes could ever be made today.
