Japanese Emblems and Designs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Japanese design has long been admired in the West. Traditional ornamentation, known as mon, is especially valued for its breathtaking flow and engrossing patterns. This superb treasury offers more than 600 of the very best mon designs, originally used in Japan as family emblems or crests, and later used to decorate kimonos, lacquered furniture, and other traditional objects. The stylized forms and striking geometrics lend themselves to a wide range of crafts and textiles, from jewelry to floor coverings. A collection of rare nineteenth-century designs from the great Japanese artist Hokusai is also included, a tantalizing finishing touch for this remarkable resource.

Synopsis:

Originally used to decorate kimonos, lacquered furniture, and other traditional objects, these 646 mon (emblems or crests) combine stylized natural and geometric forms. Many are colorized.

Synopsis:

Originally used to decorate kimonos and lacquered furniture, these unusually rhythmic and engrossing patterns — known as mon — combine stylized natural and geometric forms. 646 images, many colorized.

Synopsis:

Almost 800 mon (emblems or crests) combine natural and geometric forms for striking effects. Ideal for design, jewelry, mosaics, and more.
