Japanese Mon Book
book

unknown

The Silver Studio Collection contains many unusual objects that the designers collected as visual reference material. This is a Japanese book of 'mon', dating from the late nineteenth century. The stylised and geometric patterns it contains would have been a fascinating resource for the Silver Studio.
