Carved Paper:  The Art of Japanese Stencil, written by Susanna Kuo, with contributions by Richard L. Wilson and Thomas S. Michie and edited by Susan Tai.  This is the first comprehensive book in English on Japapese stencils for textile dyeing.  These striking patterns carved in brown paper constitute an extraordinary archive of Japanese two dimentional design - with motifs drawn from nature, poetry, folklore, and daily life.  The book chronicles the role of stencils in Japanese culture and is lavishly illustrated with prints, textiles, drawings, and photographs.
