Ji: Signs and Symbols of Japan

By Mana Maeda, Kiyokatsu Mastumoto, and Donald Richie

Hardcover 1975

This coffee table book will delight anyone who's been to Japan or has always wanted to go. "Ji" - which refers to an element of the Japanese writing system (as in kan-ji characters) - are used extensively on signs, banners, and other cultural artifacts to indicate the name of the place or to symbolize what goes on behind the door. It's a highly developed concept in Japanese culture that combines art and function in a beautifully simple way.

Hundreds of photos, hundreds of inspiring moments.
