Title: The Art of Japanese Brush Painting Cost: I paid $10 in a used bookstore for it, worth every penny Period: YUP! This book even has a nice brief historical overview by period Pages: 127
Review: This is the ideal book for someone wanting to get into Japanese brush painting, tools used, papers used, and even scroll making. The book is packed full of period info that is easy and not over whelming. Most importantly this book has an impressive 'how to' section that shows you the techniques to produce various looks. Subjects include: grains, leaves, birds, castles, evergreens, flowers, and more. If you want to get your local scroll maker a really cool gift..this is def the book to get them!
