Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book may seem esoteric to many, but it is a wonderful introduction - clear writing with beautiful examples -- of Japanese calligraphy as an art and way of communication. The iIllustrations are gorgeous, and some of the examples are not on paper but are on fabric or scroll paintings.

I think the book is very interesting and provides calligraphy from different eras. For novices as well as for the experienced.
