"'Style' Kimono Reader" - 1953 Kimono Magazine Photos

If you remember the 1953 kimono magazine I mentioned awhile back, Sutairu Kimono Tokuhon or "Style" Kimono Reader, I've taken some snapshots of the opening color pages and posted them up on Flickr. It's an interesting peek back into a different time, and what's changed and what hasn't in the kimono world.

These pages posted now all seem to be handcolored from black and white photos, and some physically pasted onto their backgrounds.

I hope to post more down the road, and translations of the captions and a couple of the articles. Ask if you have any questions, and hope you enjoy!
