    £12.99 Members' price *


    A striking and unusual view of the rich variety of Japanese art.

    Offering a superb insight into a wide array of Japanese art, the book highlights - close up and in colour - outstanding examples of design and craft in prints, paintings and screens, metalwork, ceramics, wood, stone and lacquer and will provide endless creative inspiration.

    By showing the complete artwork alongside enlarged details - sometimes virtually invisible to the naked eye - intriguing comparisons can be drawn between seemingly unrelated pieces and the full craftsmanship can be seen.

    This title is ideal for anyone interested in decorative arts and design, general readers, students and art historians alike.
