3.0 out of 5 stars Good collection, some issues April 1 2009
By tomsjeep - Published on Amazon.com
I like Dover's clip art collections. Not only do they (and the Japanese Stencil Design collection is among them) offer a variety of file formats both raster and vector for each and every image, these are named simply and organized well. The images are line art (in black and white) ready for press use. Unfortunately the disk I received has a problem with the files in TIF format... some sort of disk or directory error prevents access to them, and the system locks up. So that aside, there are plenty of other formats of these images available. I also find myself a little annoyed that Dover wants to install an image manager in order for me to access the disk. Absolutely unnecessary clutter in my programs folder that performs no useful function outside of accessing their disks. However,the uninstall feature works too.
If you are seeking a clip art source for these kinds of designs, this is an excellent, flexible, low-cost solution. Don't be alarmed at the relatively low 3 star rating I clicked. I don't get excited about things easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted! April 27 2008

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Japanese Stencil Designs CD-ROM and Book (Dover Electronic Clip-Art). I purchased this with the hope of its contents providing me with illustrations and patterns I could utilize in my art practice, specifically screen printing. It exceeded my expectations wonderfully. There are numerous large excellent quality bird and floral images and patterns that will serve me for years to come. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone searching for a similar resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Compilation of Japanese Stencils Aug. 30 2009
By LuvKimono - Published on Amazon.com
This is an excellent compilation of 168 Japanese stencil images. The CD-ROM images were scanned at 600dpi and are available in six different formats (TIFF, PICT, EPS, BMP, JPEG and GIF). You can use the CD on Windows 95-98 or a Macintosh. The primary subject matter is nature (pine boughs, iris, bamboo, birds, peony, morning glory, chrysanthemums, carp, etc.), and some of the images appear to be influenced by Okinawan bingata. To use the images for silk screening, you will want to clean up the parts where the tiny silk threads were used to hold the parts of the original stencil together. My CD-ROM was in perfect condition. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars decent collection but disk has issues May 19 2012
By Marc J. Barr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book does contain a useful cross section of designs, many of which can be found online. The convenience for their use lies in the CD, but like a previous reviewer my disk had lots of problems with the TIF format, so much so that I had difficulty ejecting the disk. I just copied off the EPS files and will access the images that way.
