"Designing with Kanji is an ode to the Eastern typographic element, a clip-art book and a short but focused history of the Japanese language itself. Tattoo artists, designers and those in need of selected 'spiritual ideograms' will enjoy this book."

I love "power" words - single words that encompass my thoughts and feelings - and kanji characters are a beautiful way to express them. I found 'Designing with Kanji' in my effort to design my next tattoo. When I did not find exactly what I was looking for in the book, I contacted Leza and she promptly responded with the characters I needed. Great book - great woman!
This book is an invaluable resource for decorative artists, jewelers and crafts people alike.
I use this book often as inspiration for my jewelry designs and paintings.
Hundreds of illustrations combined with descriptive and historical definitions make this a wonderful resource for anyone interested in the Japanese language.
