B137. The Craft of the Japanese Sword, by Kapp & Yoshihara
B137. The Craft of the Japanese Sword by Kapp & Yoshihara. 1987. Hardbound with dust jacket, 7 ½ x 10 ½”, 167 pages in English. This book does a great job of explaining how the sword, the scabbard, and the habaki are made and how a sword is polished. Photos in color and black & white, lots of drawings, and a very informative text tell you about the incredible art and skill involved. When I read this book I came away with a better understanding and even deeper appreciation of these arts; this is inspiring.
This book is with a consignor in Europe and my usual guarantee applies. The condition of the dust jacket is 99%; the book is excellent. 1 pound, 9 ounces. $15.
