$39.95 Suggested Retail Price

Charles Temple gives us a veritable encyclopedia of the themes in Japanese art, that is so richly embued with the cultural history of that people. The book explains the underlying meanings of the recurring symbols and styles of traditional Japanese art and how it carries the culture through history in its foundation in folklore and religion. This is the resource you need to have if you are studying this unique genre.
