This is a record for me! I have blogged four days this week, I am so proud of myself.
I was working on another project and came across my Temari Bibliography so here it is…at least all the English ones.
Ludlow Margaret; Temari: Lark Books.
Vandervoort, Diana; Temari Adventures;Japan Publication Trading Co.; Japan;1998.
More complicated Temari, free stitching and other Japanese crafts. 6-8-10-12-24 divisions
Wood, Mary; The Craft of Temari; Search Press; England; 1991.
Basic book 4-8-6-10 divisions
Most of these can be found on your favorite book sellers web site. And some of these authors have websites of their own and their book is available there also. If your looking for the Japanese editions, sometimes they are on Ebay and look on Ginny Thompson’s website for a place in Canada.
I have about 15-20 books written in Japanese too, most are written by Chiyoko Ozaki. All are written in Japanese and most of the books open left to right, the tradition eastern way. I do have two that have been written in Japanese but open in the traditional western method right to left. (one of them is shown in the second picture, far right.) They are great to look at and once you understand how to do Temari divisions you can usually figure out how to do the Temari Ball. Someday I am going to find someone who can translate parts of these books for me. I think once I get the jest of them I can decode the rest. For now I just figure them out and sometimes come up with smething similar but different. There are endless possibilities.
