Things Japanese: Everyday Objects of Exceptional Beauty and Significance Reviews
This is a good introduction to the world of Japanese crafts. It is well worth your investment and time.
Bought as gift and I know it has been read cover to cover several times.
Fun book that gave me some new wish list/project ideas.
Great book!... It really is about things (that are) Japanese.
Love the photos and the author's explanation of Things Japanese. I inherited many things from my mother and didn't know the history of them, until I read this book. Lovely coffee table book that provides beautiful photos, short-sweet, but detailed history & uses of everyday things I associate with Japan--tea ceremony items, shoji screens, kimonos & dolls. It also documents unusal items most Westerners don't know about--wooden chests, masks and entrance curtains.
This book contains information on many Japanese articles. I am very happy to have it and will use it as a reference book.
Well written, easy reading and full of information
I gave my granddaughter this book for her birthday and she loved it!
