Here's an exciting and charming addition to the CLAMP collection of works! CLAMP artist Mokona loves the art of traditional Japanese kimono. In fact, she designs kimono and kimono accessories herself and shares her love in Okimono Kimono, a fun and lavishly illustrated book full of drawings and illustrations, interviews (including an interview with Ami of the J-pop duo Puffy AmiYumi!), and even short manga stories from the CLAMP artists.
Fans of CLAMP will love Okimono Kimono for the personal glimpse of Mokona's kimono obsession, and people who love the traditional Japanese arts will appreciate the love and detail Mokona puts into her work.

Mokona is the alias of the lead illustrator of Clamp, the all-female manga team. Makona is responsible for character design, illustration, color, and composition.From Booklist:
Mokona, a member of the manga group CLAMP, is also a kimono aficionado. In 2003, she decided to wear a kimono in everyday life as often as she could, and she shares the enjoyment that has brought her in this book. Mokona gives readers plenty of reasons to love the kimono as she does: showing off her own collection, spotlighting her personal designs, photographing models wearing kimono fashions, and more. The sections are nicely arranged to lead readers into her hobby and show them how to make it their own. This is not a how-to book, though, as it was written for a Japanese audience that knows the parts of the kimono and has access to resources on how to wear it. But libraries looking for a new addition to their fashion collections will find that this book will catch the eye not only of CLAMP fans but also of fashionistas looking for new ways to accessorize. A few pictures get lost in the ditch between the pages, but that is the only misstep in this modern look at an antique piece of clothing. --Snow Wildsmith
