NEW BACKGROUND CATALOG COLOR EDITION 5 JIDAIMONO
Jidaimono (時代物) are Japanese kabuki or jōruri plays that feature historical plots and characters, often famous samurai battles. These are in contrast to sewamono (世話物), contemporary plays, which generally focus on commoners and domestic issues. 'Jidaimono' is usually translated as "period plays".
This new all-color version of the popular series "Background Catalog" is a collection of historical drama-style background photos that are useful when drawing backgrounds for manga, illustrations, anime, etc. set in historical Japan. The special bookbinding opens the page all the way, making it easier to copy and trace.
