Japanese Design: Art, Aesthetics & Culture
By: Midwest Book Review
Former professor and museum curator Patricia J. Graham presents Japanese Design: Art, Aesthetics & Culture, a studious exploration of the artistic ideals that permeate Japanese culture, from its architecture and fine objects of art to everyday utensils or snack food packaging. Full color photography on almost every page illustrate Graham's insights into the history, traditions, and aesthetic principles of expressions ranging from folk crafts to architecture, clothing, pottery, woodblock printings, silk hangings and much more. A treasury for art connoisseurs as well as students and scholars in search of inspiration, Japanese Design: Art, Aesthetics & Culture is highly recommended.
