I just got this new book. It is on repairing ceramics and lacquer using lacquer and gold. I went to an antiques dealer that gives a class on this topic and found out it costs a minimum of 60,000 yen to take the course he is offering. This is the book he uses to teach the course. If you look at the photo of the back it says the price is 2,500 yen but it is out of print and I only found it for about 5,000 yen. (Monkeys fall out of trees too, I found the same book, newer edition, for about 2,600 yen, see http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/4898061524/ref=s9_simh_gw_p14_d0_g14_i1?pf_rd_m=AN1VRQENFRJN5&pf_rd_s=center-3&pf_rd_r=0BSYMCCXH2KJ7RC6JWZ0&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=463376776&pf_rd_i=489986 ) I will post some pictures of how to do the repair after I go through it a little.
