Splendid, well-illustrated study of seventy-seven important calligraphic works from a period of remarkable flowering in Japan's highest visual art - with great spiritual, especially Zen Buddhist, resonance. This is, in fact, the first book in English to be devoted to Japanese calligraphy spanning the Momoyama and Edo periods. Recommended.
