This beautiful book by Fukushi Shigeo was published in 2001 and presents the works of the seventeen generations of Goto artists. Beginning with four fold-out plates of exceptional koshirae spanning over 40 inches in width, this spectacular text continues with finest examples of each of school’s seventeen masters. As expected, oversized views of craftsmanship details and signatures are present throughout. Index and descriptions in both Japanese and English. This is an exceptional reference for serious students of Goto work. Limited first edition printing of printing of 200 individually numbered copies.
This book consists of 352 pages with many color photos showing the exceptional detail of these works of art, 10 x 14″ hardcover with slipcase. Some samples of the quality of the photographs are shown above. I have only one copy of this “out of print” work but when it is gone, its gone.
