Description

Japanese paper has long been central to the country's traditional culture. Washi has linked gods and men, its pure whiteness being prized in daily life and in native Shinto ritual. Eriko Horiki, working as artist/designer/artisan, has given washi new qualities. In Japanese houses it has always been the material of choice for lanterns, paper screens, sliding doors and much more.

This book is full of exquisite images of Horiki's work, and is also a detailed exposition of the history and cultural significance of washi, as well as its place in architecture and construction. A singularly lovely book.
