Shipping is calculated by computer and is not always accurate. When in doubt, feel free to email me a list of the items you would like to order, and I'll get back to you with an accurate amount. Another option is to place the items you'd like in your cart, take a picture of your screen with the order, and email it to me. If you use the web page shipping algorithm and are overcharged, I'll certainly notify you and refund the difference.

This book is the first in a series of publications prepared as companion texts to collections of textiles I have compiled. My hope is that the compendiums, in the form of text and illustrations, will help you gain a better understanding of the textile treasures you may currently possess, or perhaps be of help in making educated choices as you expand upon what you already cherish or are able to view in the collections of others.


Three versions are available to suit your interest level and budget.

-stand alone book, shown on this page

-book plus seven mounted, indigo-dyed samples from Japan illustrating the main categories presented in the text. Housed in a copper-embossed box with a magnetic closure.

-a deluxe, limited edition including A Collector’s Guide to Japanese Textiles: INDIGO plus Singing the Blues and forty-four mounted samples–all housed in a beautifully hand-crafted wooden box hand crafted by Anthony Klissus, a loom builder.
