    Ainu Spirit of a Northern People doc ☆ Paperback read Ainu Spirit of a Northern PeopleAbout two decades ago we happened to catch the Ainu exhibit at one of the Smithsonian Museums and it was uite fascinating I bought this book which was the exhibit catalog and background book I've dipped into it from time to time since but very common in this household it took me 20 years to get around to a cover to cover readFirst the pictures are beautiful They are often uite detailed so that you get a clear sense of the garment or artifact uite a number of early photographs are included and an impressive selection of Ainu e Japanese paintings of Ainu subjects especially Shimanojo Murakami's Curious Sights of Ezo Island c 1799 and Hakyo Kakizaki's Portraits of Ezo
