Gorgeous photos and insightful text introduce the work of today's foremost Noh mask artist, actor, and teacher.

Noh master Michishige Udaka (the only living actor to continue to make masks while still performing and teaching), presents 32 of the more than 200 masks he's created, accompanied by revelatory text about the masks and the simple yet nuanced ancient dramatic art of Noh. Best-selling author Ruth Ozeki, who studied Noh theater with Udaka in Japan, has contributed a new Foreword to the paperback edition.
