Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Japanese style is famed for its simplicity and quiet elegance, and Japanese crafts for their exquisite workmanship. Handmade Style: Japan offers inspiration and step-by-step instructions for twenty beautiful craft projects that bring the Japanese aesthetic to the home. Translucent paper lanterns, a green bamboo coffee table, and the tranquil sounds of an indoor water garden add soft sophistication to a living room. Kimono-style robes and a fragrant cedarwood floor mat are luxurious touches in the bathroom. And for the dining area: pretty sashiko (stitched) table mats, a lacquered tea tray, and imaginative stacking lunchboxes. From simple crafts, to more challenging projects, each decorative piece is as functional as it isgorgeous. Lavishly photographed throughout, Handmade Style: Japan illustrates the process as well as the finished project, so that crafters, beginning and experienced, can create an impressive product with ease and confidence. Both lovely and practical, this volume is the perfect guide for those who wish to grace their homes the subtle nuances of Japanese style.

Synopsis:

Wood offers inspiration and step-by-step instructions for 20 beautiful craft projects that bring the Japanese aesthetic to the home. Delicate paper lanterns, a green bamboo coffee table, an indoor water garden, and stitched table mats are featured. 150 color images.
