English! and Japanese. The introduction by Nobuko Murakami describes the “Debut of Japan New Fine Art” and the creation of beautiful temari to represent characters in traditional Japanese novels and plays. “Noda, the author, boldly expressed ladies characters whose personalities were quite different from one another as designs of Japanese traditional Gotenmari (Japanese artistic ball) and Takashi Majima, a famous cameraman, shot them at his unique angle.”

Each design has a description in English which describes the subject. There are no patterns or diagrams, but many lovely photos of unique temari.
