KIRKUS REVIEW

The first book in English dealing exclusively with the costume of the Kabuki theater of Japan surveys all aspects of the subject from wigs to footwear. Textile designs, make-up, formats of costume for specific roles down to styles of typing the obi are covered, with backstage glimpses of famous actors who have influenced costume development and of the mechanics of costuming a Kabuki production.
