Kabuki is the popular form of theatre in Japan that combines drama, music and dance, performed in lavish costumes amid spectacular stage sets. The 61 woodblock prints in this book date from the 19th century and are now in the National Museum of Scotland. Beautifully reproduced and accompanied by commentaries explaining the plots, characters and artists, the prints bring to life the energy and variety of kabuki's visual spectacle.
