This Saul Steinberg drawing (from 1971) says it all. Is there anything else? I have (books), here are some images that inspire me.
Embroidered coverlet, Mexican dated 1786, image from American Quilts and Coverlets in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Wouldn't these characters make charming dolls?
The next few are from Knot ISBN978-4-07-257058-6. Click the photos to see them bigger.
ETA: Sources for Japanese craft books Kinokuniya. I shop at the store in Los Angeles. Here is a link to Knot on Amazon Japan. I haven't ordered from them before so I don't have advice on how to navigate the site. I also found Knot listed on Yes Asia. I have ordered books from Yes Asia before. It's pretty straightforward.
