It's Arrived

The copy of Jill Liddell's wonderful, "The Story of the Kimono" has arrived, all the way from the US of A!  I've been trying to get a copy, at a sensible price, for a long time since Jenni Dobson recommended it and am so excited to finally have one.  The book was published in 1989 by E. P. Dutton and the ISBN is 0-525-24574-X.  Here are a couple of pictures from the glorious inside, when I've read it I'll write more.


  1. Oh Lis, you know now I want one too. I will get my library to get a copy for our collections.
    Lis, I'm going to destruct a kimono in the next couple of days. I have one that I haven't worn for 3 years and thought why not destruct it and use the fabric - Hugs Nat

  2. What a great book!! I didn't know there was a book about the history of kimono's.....!!!
    It seems so interesting!
    Have fun discovering!! :)

  3. For anyone interested in kimono, check out the forum sections at - there is a ton of information there!
