The theme of this beautifully printed work is the long tradition of exploring Japanese books and scrolls as an art form. To the modern collector, these often hand-made works continue to fascinate. Be they printed, painted or calligraphic, this excellent work brings alive their history from the eighth to the twentieth centuries. Illustrated with almost one hundred examples in their original brilliant color, it was handsomely produced in a limited edition for the "Book Club of California" and is now available, complete but in slightly smaller format, for a wider audience. In a thoroughly readable text, the author shares his enjoyment on a large subject which western collectors have largely neglected. No divide in history or habit separates us from the beauty of Japanese books, to which this present work provides a delightful introductory visit.Biografía del autor:
Colin Franklin is a distinguished bookman who has been a publisher, bookseller and author through his long career. He has a special interest in Japanese books and has visited the country over twenty-five times.
