This book offers a thorough examination of Japanese style. Through an in-depth study of Japanese art and culture, world-renowned scholar Gian Carlo Calza defines the very essence of that recognizable yet elusive quality that is Japanese style, equipping readers with the tools to fully understand and appreciate it. He draws connections between art, religion, history, philosophy and mythology, and examines specific examples of Japanese literature, art and architecture, from ancient times to the present. Beautifully illustrated with over 150 images, including paintings, prints, sculptures and photographs, this book is a perfect introduction to Japananese style and culture.
