a new book covers Japanese art and culture

Sandrine Bailly, writer and literature teacher, says she imagined the book Japan, a silent journey “Like a dream” through which the reader walks “slowly towards a beauty that can only be guessed through the shadows”. The result is a unique and exquisite tribute to Japanese culture, with more than 180 images, some by historical masters such as Kitagawa Utamoro and Suzuki Harunobu and others by contemporary artists such as Takesada Matsutani or Toko Shinoda.

Chinese ink drawings, scroll paintings, engravings, lithographs and photographs follow one another on its pages accompanied by short explanatory texts, haiku, carefully selected literary extracts that shed light on aesthetic notions, emblematic works or philosophical concepts, such as the perishableness of things. (wabi sabi) or the hidden beauty of the world (yûgen). The book Japan, a silent journey has been edited by Lunwerg Editores and consists of 256 pages.
