The full-colour, hardback follow-up to "Serious Art" illustrates 99 fine netsuke using much the same format, in a total of 300 multi-angle illustrations. The range of works is from good to very important; one highlight of the selection is the grouping of twelve superb naturalistic wood zodiac animals, each carved by either Ikkan or Tomokazu.
