Abstract

This museum catalogue accompanies the Hearst Museum's 1994-1995 exhibition, "Back Roads to Far Towns: Folk Art of Rural Japan." The book includes a comprehensive introductory essay reviewing a century of interest in the folk culture of Japan. The book also contains a series of revealing and entertaining letters written by the Museum's collector who gathered traditional Japanese crafts in Kyoto during the mid-1960s.
