    About WAKAN SANSAI ZUE (from Wikipedia)

    ******The Wakan Sansai Zue (Illustrated Sino-Japanese Encyclopedia) is an illustrated Japanese leishu encyclopedia published in 1712 in the Edo period. It consists of 105 volumes in 81 books. Its compiler was Terashima or Terajima (Terajima Ryoan), a doctor from Osaka. It describes and illustrates various items and activities of daily life. As seen from the title of the book (wa), which means Japan and (kan), which means China), Terajima's idea was based on a Chinese encyclopedia, specifically the Ming work Sancai Tuhui ("Pictorial..." or "Illustrated Compendium of the Three Powers") by Wang Qi (1607), known in Japan as the Sansai Zue. Reproductions of the Wakan Sansai Zue are still in print in Japan.******

    From the Publisher: ******A self-confessed plain dresser, Katharine Adams instead dazzles the world with the fabulous collection that is Couturier Dreams. Gorgeous floating emulsion "garments" dance on every page, with a life and style all of their own. Adams makes collage emulsion images by removing Polaroid photographs from their paper backing and placing them into baths of warm water. She then remounts them onto Arches Watercolor paper, coaxing them into a suggestive silhouette, sometimes taking up to six hours to achieve what she wants. The results are joyful, playful, sensual and original, with a sense of freedom that is gloriously liberating. Spending long hours in the darkroom, Adams describes getting into a dream state as vital to her work. "A type of alchemy occurs," she explains, "when the image is set free, floating, and my journey starts." This beautifully produced book features forty of the artist's most powerful images, richly printed on matt Japanese paper. A stunning first monograph, Couturier Dreams is limited to 1,500 copies.******

ALL THE PHOTOS SEEM TO BE OF QUILTS FROM VARIOUS QUILT SHOWS that took place from 1992 to 1996. The owner of this photo album obviously attended quite a number of quilt shows and took lots of color snapshots. There are small notes about the shows and/or quilters on many of the pages, i.e. Pacific International Quilt Show 10/92 Hyatt Regency, Burlingame (California); Dec. 2, 92 - Black & White & Color All Over - Quilts by Gretchen Hill - New Pieces; San Ramon (California) 92; Nancy Freeman 12/92; Quilts by East Bay Heritage Quilters - Kaiser Center Art Gallery, 93, Oakland (California); Guild of Quilters of Contra Costa County - 93 Anniversary Quilt Show; Virginia Levine 10/93; etc. Most of the photos are in the range of 4" x 6" to 3" x 5", some smaller, some larger, approximately 4 - 6 per page. These are actual photos, with "Kodak" on the backsides of the photos. Most photos appear to be laid in loosely, held in place by the clinging plastic page coverings. Most can be removed and examined on both sides. The photos all appear clean and in generally GOOD to VERY GOOD condition.
