Title: Bugaku: Treasures From The Kasuga Shrine Period?: VERY! Heian info to Edo! With several photos of period pieces from the shrine's collection, including well preserved period clothing. Photos: Full color, high gloss, high quality, large.
Thoughts?: I love this book. If you are interested in Japanese theater or religion, or just colorful Japanese history and tradition this book is a total gem! Some of the garb, and even the masks seem a little unique to me. The masks in particular with the hanging free jaws are really cool, and ...period! The bulk of the items in photographs are from the mariachi, momoyama, and edo periods.
