Blue and White JapaneBook - 2012
This Japanese design book presents the refined interiors of Japan with dozens of stunning color photos and extensive commentary. This delightful book shows that wherever it is used, the creative juxtaposition of blue and white provides both visual nourishment and spiritual balm. From the ephemeral beauty of a wind-blown noren curtain to the powerful geometry of zabuton cushions, to the calming symmetry of a soba cup-whether new or old, homely or sophisticated-all of these objects convey a lyrical message that speaks to our senses, inspiring us to seek out new ways to collect, create, and live with Japanese blue & white. Blue & White Japan will appeal to home-decorators looking for new inspiration or to the casual reader looking for insight into the fascinating world of Japanese design.
