Detailed Description

Traditional Japanese Chests : A Definitive Guide. Author, Kazuko Koizum

The complete guide to traditional Japanese chests by a leading scholar of traditional furniture. Truly the definitive guide to the world of Japanese chests, this book showcases the rich variety and the fine craftsmanship of these unique items of furniture. Over one hundred and fifty photographs illustrate the styles, the regional differences, the unusual workmanship, and the fine materials that were used in their production. The text covers a wide variety of subject matter with much attention to detail, such as the birth and evolution of the chests, the effects of local Japanese culture on the design, the importance of sea chests, and the distribution channels that led to their spread across the country. It also features in-depth explanations of the materials and the finishing-with an emphasis on traditional Japanese lacquer and the metal fittings and motifs. Traditional Japanese Chests is especially useful as a reliable reference for the serious collector who collects or appreciates Japanese chests, as well as furniture makers and interior designers. But its lavishly illustrated pages make it a joy for anyone who sees great value in the art of creating extremely practical items of beauty.
