Adzuma, or, the Japanese Wife: A Play in Four Acts





Sir Edwin Arnold (1832-1904)
Adzuma, or, the Japanese Wife: A Play in Four Acts
New York: Scribner, 1893

White, dark green, olive green, and gold on pale green cloth. Another version exists on white cloth.

Armstrong’s use of gold and darker inks creates a striking and bold image. The design is symmetrical and walks a fine line between the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau styles that Armstrong carried into much of her work.
