1935. Limp Vellum (folded over). Fine. 4to. 25 by 16 cm. Unpaginated, 21 leaves, or 21 pp. with content. (11 pages with original watercolors, and the balance of pages with calligraphy employed in original verse.) The illustrations are very striking, especially the several of masks. Also striking is a colorful, flamboyantly winged chicken and a pig-faced man. The images are set starkly in the center of the page, with no surrounding decoration, and thus hew to an Oriental minimalism that allows them to leap off the page. The verse is a perfect complement, and the two work together seamlessly, paying homage to an Oriental style and flair while never entirely embodying it. We have no information on Aileen Street, the creator Small vellum tear by lower spine. Otherwise, clean and crisp.
