AYAO
, Yamano. Kafee Baa Kissaten Kokoku Zuanshu. 48 pp. Illustrated throughout with colour and black-and-white illustrations and some photomontage. Folio, 300 x 225 mm, bound in publisher's boards in the original cardboard portfolio. Tokyo: Seibundo, 1930.

A collection of designs by the important twentieth-century Japanese decorator/designer Yamana Ayao (1897-1980), the originator of the "Shiseido-style" during his long tenure as the cosmetic company's head designer. This particular portfolio is a compilation of his designs for the coffee shop/bar trade, introducing a modified Deco aesthetic which was the height of chic between the wars. Some browning, overall a very good copy of a rare book.
