5.0 out of 5 stars Each carefully selected image draws your eye to detail., 24 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This is much, much, more than the usual self-conscious, glossy coffe-table style book. Presented as a visual narrative of traditional Japanese building forms and gardens the text is appropriately kept to a minimum. Each carefully selected image draws your eye to detail: to the earthy and exquisite use of texture, colour, pattern, structure and proportion. You can almost feel the stony paths underfoot, the sun through the fresh green bamboo and the tactile qualities of the weathered timber. It is a book to turn to again and again for creative inspiration, a sense of calm and connection to place. The author successfully shows how the visual language can be communicated on an emotional level to appeal to a wider audience. So, even if you are not that interested in design, after you have read this book, I guarantee you will be hooked.
