Joman through Momoyama Periods

Both CONSORT and OhioLINK catalogs contain many books specifically on art during the periods from Jomon through Momoyama.  To locate these books search the catalog using keywords (for example: Jomon and art).  Order books not available at Kenyon by 'requesting' the item and typing in your name and barcode from the back of your Kenyon I.D.  Materials should arrive in about 5 working days.

A few books from the Edo-contemporary Japanese art scene are listed below.  Many more books are available in the library catalogs
