Tokutaro Yagi was based in Kyoto in the nineteenth century and was recognized as the master of Japanese marbling. His technique involved floating colors and carefully manipulating them by blowing on them directly or through a straw, fanning the colors, or carefully using a human hair to stir the colors. In 1913, Yagi dictated this book to a professor at a Kyoto textile college in order to preserve his special suminagashi techniques. The text describes colors, tools, water, chemicals and techniques for marbling paper and silk. Includes directions for creating twenty different suminagashi patterns.
