Haibara opened its doors in the Nihonbashi district of Edo (now Tokyo) in 1806. From its heyday as a purveyor of fine washi paper in the nineteenth century through the turbulent years of Japan’s modernization and beyond, it has continued to add grace to everyday life through originally designed paper products tailored to the needs and tastes of each age. This richly illustrated book tells the 200-year story of Haibara and the renowned artists who contributed designs for its merchandise, among them Takehisa Yumeji, Shibata Zeshin, Kawase Hasui, and Kawanabe Kyosai.
