Item No.: 150907


gift wrap?: 

By Delphine Hirasuna.

Imprisoned in remote camps surrounded by barbed wire and guarded by soldiers with machine guns, many Japanese American internees sought courage and solace in art. Using found materials at first and later what they could order by catalog, they whittled and carved, painted and etched, stitched and crocheted.

What they created is a celebration of the nobility of the human spirit under adversity. This beautiful book presents more than 150 examples of art created by the internees along with a history of the camps.

Hardbound: 128 pp.
