B1033. Kinko Mino Bori by Kokubo Kenichi
B1033. Kinko Mino Bori by Kokubo Kenichi. 1973. Clothbound with slipcase, 7 ¼ x 10 ¼”, 180 pages in Japanese. Mino Bori is the carving style developed by the artisans of what is today known as Gifu Province; it has always been important. The first 146 pages are crisp black & white photos of wonderful Kodogu; the rest is discussion with illustrations. A very good reference for a school for which there is surprisingly little in print. Excellent condition. 2 pounds, 4 ounces. $40.
