Beginning with her series "Mothers" (2005) and continuing with her Hiroshima work (2010), Miyako Ishiuchi came into contact with many silk garments from the past. It was clear from both series that while she was no doubt interested in what those garments told us about the past, she was also fascinated with what the material itself could tell us on a more abstract level.

In this book, that more textural interest comes to dominate as Ishiuchi concentrates on meisen silk fabric which enjoyed an immense popularity in Japan from the 1880s to the 1940s.
