Description

Explore Japanese folk art-called mingei-with this beautifully illustrated book. Mingei literally means the "arts of the people" and is a treasured expression of Japanese culture and history. This book of Japanese folk art introduces 116 exquisite and interesting Japanese pieces, describing their origins, showing how they are made and used, and relating the background of myth and folklore associated with each. Illustrated with many line drawings and color photographs, Mingei offers readers a concise and informative introduction to a rich and varied artistic tradition.
