Description
 
Eleanor Underwood (au); Liza Dalby (fr). The mysterious milieu of Japan’s treasured geisha -- with her stylized makeup, elaborate coiffure, elegant kimono, & artful, coquettish manner -- has long fascinated observers around the globe. This book explores the world of geisha, from their early predecessors in the 7th cent. to geisha today. Beautiful ukiyo-e woodblock prints by Japanese masters reveal the special geisha spirit. Geisha songs, haiku & senryu (satirical Edo-period verse) accompany images of geisha in various stages of development to portray the unique realm of these female artist-entertainers. Antique photos form the late 19th cent. as well as vintage postcards & posters offer a glimpse into this singular Japanese subculture Includes art photos from the mid-1940s to today.
