Somebody around here is obviously getting rid of souvenirs of a trip to China, or cleaning out an estate of a Chinese person! There are so many Asian artifacts at the local opshops recently. I'm a sucker for anything Chinese or Japanese, so these found their way back home with me this week.
This isn't a kimono, because it only comes down past my hips. I've heard them called "Happy Coats". I was happy enough paying only $15 for this!
There were two of these books for $1.30 each, but I only bought one. This is the slip cover that the book resides in. (The photo I took of the actual book cover didn't turn out)
The pages are light cardboard, and the pictures are actually cut outs, protected under a cellophone sheet. Very unusual and quite beautiful.
