Japanese homes and their surroundings
In this book, the author spent more than 4 years visiting hundreds of Japanese homes and learning as much as possible about their construction, design, furnishings, and relative merits. It is the only authentic record of the traditional home — mats, lamps, screens, gardens — from its general plan to the smallest decorative detail. 307 illustrations.
