"Christopher Dresser, an architect and ornamentalist by profession, with an unrivalled knowledge of many art manufacturing processes, went to Japan to observe what an ordinary visitor would naturally pass unnoticed - the specialist techniques of Japanese architecture, ornament and art. While in Japan he made a daily record of what he saw and did, illustrated with exquisite drawings. The result is this work on all aspects of architecture, building and the decorative arts of Japan which had a profound effect on design in the West. From temples to carpentry tools, from lanterns to theatre design, all are displayed and described here in wonderful detail."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
