    This beautifully illustrated survey examines the art and artists of the Edo period, one of the great epochs in Japanese art. Together with the imperial city of Kyoto and the port cities of Osaka and Nagasaki, the splendid capital city of Edo (now Tokyo) nurtured a magnificent tradition of painting, calligraphy, printmaking, ceramics, architecture, textile work, and lacquer. As each city created its own distinctive social, political, and economic environment, its art acquired a unique flavor and aesthetic. Author Christine Guth focuses on the urban aspects of Edo art, including discussions of many of Japan’s most popular artists—Korin, Utamaro, and Hiroshige, among others—as well as those that are lesser known, and provides a fascinating look at the cities in which they worked.

    To the Japanese, paper is far more than merely something upon which to draw. It is venerated for its purity, a synthesis of the relationship between gods and men. Cut or folded, it becomes an extension of speech and gesture. As an object of utility, paper's importance encourages the designer to emphasize its feel, fragrance, and color. Over 260 color photos illustrate the many ways in which Japan celebrates paper. 222p.
