What is the kimono? Everyday garment? Art object? Symbol of Japan? As Terry Satsuki Milhaupt explains in this book, the kimono has served all of these roles, its meaning changing across time and with the perspective of the wearer or viewer. Kimono: A Modern History traces the transformation of the Japanese garment from everyday attire to National symbol, exploring the historic and contemporary use of this enduring cultural legacy.
