Item description for Japanese Dolls: The Fascinating World of Ningyo by Alan Scott Pate...

For the art enthusiast, the doll collector, as well as the casual reader, the world of Japanese dolls is a fascinating one. For centuries, Japanese doll artisans created spectacular works of art, invested with both significant cultural meaning and elemental beauty, encased in the deceptively simple body of a doll.

In Japanese Dolls: The Fascinating World of Ningyo, Alan Scott Pate, the leading American expert on Japanese dolls, answers the many and varied questions surrounding how to collect these amazing artifacts. What types of dolls are available for the collector of today? What are some of the features and characteristics that will help collectors identify the dolls they find and evaluate them? Who were some of the earliest collectors in Japan, Europe and the United States? How do we preserve and care for these invaluable artifacts from Japan's past? Focusing on the 18 most widely collected, obtainable and affordable antique and vintage Japanese dolls, this book is a cornucopia of information for collectors of all levels and interests.

Reviews - What do customers think about Japanese Dolls: The Fascinating World of Ningyo?

Great book on Japanese dollmaking  May 16, 2008
This book may be the best one I have purchased in over a year, on any subject.I am so happy to have it in my collection. Photography is excellent,and if you are an artist/dollmaker, the inspirational element is fantastic. Historically, the book is loaded with info that is fascinating.I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in dollmaking as I am,and who finds Asian artifacts refreshingly different on an artistic basis.What a great book! If you love dolls,this is a must have,You will not be dissappointed!
A serious look at Japanese dolls  May 5, 2008
Alan Pate's second book on Japanese dolls gives the occidental reader a real understanding of the Japanese doll within the context of Japanese culture. The work would be cheap at 2X the price. The photographs are stunning and worth the price of admission. For the collector serious or casual this (and his earlier work, Ningyo) are all one needs.
Most highly recommended.
