Taisho Chic: Japanese Modernity, Nostalgia, and Deco
Honolulu, HI Honolulu Academy of Arts 2001 0295982446 / 9780295982441 Hardcover Very Good Fine Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall

No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "Catalogue entries on popular songbooks, kimono, and decorative arts further investigate the potent relations between styles and ideologies imported from the West and those newly established as Japanese tradition. The nihonga paintings, woodblock prints, textiles, and domestic artifacts discussed and illustrated here come primarily from the Honolulu Academy of Arts, which organized the exhibition documented by this book. Many of these works have never been published and several major paintings, exhibited in Japan during the 1920s and 1930s then lost after the war, are brought to light here for the first time in decades. This catalogue not only presents newly discovered works but also, in bringing together a broad range of objects representative of mainstream Taisho visual culture, reconstructs the styles popular from 1915 to 1935 in a celebration of Taisho Chic." - Publisher.

Jersey Diners, Genovese, Peter
20 Genovese, Peter
Jersey Diners
New Brunswick, NJ Rutgers University Press 1996 0813523508 / 9780813523507 1st Hardcover Very Good Very Good Collectible Oblong 
Cloth, viii, 242 pp., [24] pp. of plates, illus. (some col.); 21 x 26 cm. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Boards slightly bowed, age toning. Dust jacket, with light edgewear, protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. Profusely illustrated. "There is nothing more 'Jersey' than a diner. Adorning the highways and byways of fully half of the state's 566 municipalities, no one in New Jersey lives far from one. There are more diners here than in any other state, and on top of that, one of the two remaining diner manufacturers is located in the Garden State. In a year of roadside research, Peter Genovese talked to owners, employees, and customers, and ate more bacon and egg sandwiches than he cares to remember. The result is a funny, revealing book about a beloved American institution. Whether you want to know where and how diners started, who invented eggs served in a skillet, why these twenty-four-hours-a-day eateries are so popular, or, most important, which one has the best French toast, Jersey Diners has the answers. Packed with facts, trivia, and stories about the owners, employees, and clientele, the book is also complemented with over three hundred evocative, beautiful photos of the buildings, their distinctive dcor, the food, and the people who love it from Sussex to Salem counties. / Peter Genovese, a feature writer for The Star-Ledger, eats, lives-even dreams-New Jersey. The author of The Jersey Shore Uncovered, Roadside New Jersey, and The Great American Roadtrip, he has driven more than one million miles around the state in the past twenty years." - Publisher.
