Netsuke - tiny, exquisitely carved sculptures used as toggles to secure items suspended at the waist - have long been an obsession for collectors, in the West as well as in the East. While several books have been published on the subject, few examine these diminutive masterpieces in the context of Japanese life, or detail the origins of the designs and themes that evolved through the centuries.

by Noriko Tsuchiya, A book exploring Netsuke - the small carved toggles used to fasten a man’s sash, an integral part of Japanese costume. Today netsuke are considered an art form in their own right and are prized by collectors around the world. They are found in a variety of forms and depict a wide range of subjects – including figures of human and legendary form, ghosts, animals, botanical subjects and masks. Skillfully worked, these miniature carvings are of great artistic value, but they also provide a window into Japanese culture and society.

They depict a variety of figures, both domestic and exotic, from marketplace tradesmen to otherworldly beings to perfectly rendered animals. This superbly illustrated, accessibly written volume examines netsuke in the context of Japanese life and details the origins of designs that have evolved through the centuries. It delves into the minds of the artists and explores the question of the objects' use, both functional and symbolic. Featuring 300 netsuke from three world-renowned collections, this is the definitive work on these remarkably minute, endlessly intricate objects.

I have been fascinated by nestuke ever since attending an exhibition on this subject at the British Museum in the seventies. Over the years I have considered purchasing various books on this form of decorative art but have hesitated, usually due to the prohibitive cost. Nestuke books are generally very expensive. So it is a pleasure to report that my first netsuke book, bought sight unseen, is an exemplary introduction to the subject and a bargain to boot.

The written content by Joe Earle gives an interesting and informative overview of the subject. There are many examples of netsuke in the book, mostly of great interest. To a non expert in this area, they seem of high quality. The photographic and print quality is excellent, particularly given the modest asking price. Strongly recommended as an introduction to this interesting area of decorative art.

This is a most glorious book. The pictures are beyond words. I've been interested in Netsukes for the past 5 years and can't get enough of them. They are wonderful little works of art. This would be considered a very good coffee table book and I feel even those not interested in collecting Netsukes would love looking at the photos in this book. I always am interested in quality books on a subject I'm collecting or need before getting into an item of collection. I highly recommend this book to anyone!!
