Japanese Ribbon Embroidery Book

My friend Tracey Brookshier just returned from the big quilt show in Tokyo (Japan's version of the Houston show) the week before Point Bonita. I had asked her to find me a book on Japanese ribbon embroidery while she was there, and she came home with a doozie.
It's all in Japanese...all I know is that it is published by Mokuba, whose ribbons are used throughout the book.
I was so blown away by this work that I wanted to share just the front and back covers of the book with you all...I don't think that busts any copright laws. When you click on a picture a 900 X 1061 pixel image will come up. I wanted to leave it large so you could see the details.
Unbelievably scrumptious!!!!



Do click on the link to the Tokyo show to see some amazing quilts...

Those prizewinning quilts are very beautiful! You can certainly see the American influence on them.

Scrumptious flowers and leaves in silk ribbons!!! If you're already experienced with silk ribbon embroidery, couldn't you could get a lot of them just by looking at the pictures? I've never seen silk ribbons with a picot edge or even the two-tone one used for one of the leaves. Are they available anywhere in the states and/or on-line?

Thanks for doing this today - my designated day for "research and development" (better known as hanging out on the internet - loafing) This is gorgeous, and sets me back a bit to the lower intermediate in silk ribbon embroidery. I will get out my ribbon now and begin to practice. These are beautiful - The Japanese and Australians are definitely a good influence!! The universal language.

The book looks wonderful. I've already spent too much time on line today, but will come back later to check out the Show. The Japanese are amazing Fiber Artists.

Thanks for posting the very inspiring covers, I might have to change my mind and learn SRE.

Honestly - it is almost too much to take in! I'm such a newbie/novice on any and all things embroidery... it's gorgeous and overwhelming (all at the same time!)

Thanks for showing the covers of the book. I think having the right ribbon would be half the battle. I just love the leaves in that two-tone ribbon! I hope the drawings are excellent so that you can use that to make some of these wonderful designs.
