Format: Paperback
16 Kabuki Costumes with short description, such as "Benkei (an 11th-century warrior) in Kanjincho (The subscription List). Juhachiban." Each costume comes with appropriate Kumadori (make-ups) and wig.
Even though I don't know the details of each Kabuki costume, I believe it well convey the mood of Kabuki. If you are interested in Kabuki, it'll be a good starter.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By HN on February 27, 2001
Format: Paperback
The kabuki costumes are very colorful and wonderfully drawn. There are 8 female costumes and 8 male costumes. The dolls are made of thicker paper, found on the flap of the back cover. Even though it defeats the point of having paper dolls, I found that I rather liked keeping the costumes uncut and left in the book. I use this book for reference, given the handy short descriptions on the side. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars was because I've seen better work from Ming-Ju Sun. I recommend Ming-Ju Sun's "Japanese Kimono." This book has 26 costumes, more detailed with better color, and the whole book is done on thick paper. The paper for the Kabuki Costumes was much thinner and would most likely not endure prolonged handling. Both books are the same price but I believe you get a better deal with "Japanese Kimono."

Format: Paperback
Ming-Ju Sun has created a lovely collection of kabuki outfits, each one with the name of the character, play it is from, and style of play, from historical drama to musical. The inside of the covers also contains history and information on kabuki and kabuki actors. I recommend this for Ming-Ju Sun fans and kabuki fans, and those who love to collect beautiful paper dolls.
