The first and only survey of Japanese design as seen through the lens of Japans traditional colour spectrum  an exquisitely packaged fresh take on a universally popular topicThe traditional colours of Japan have been in use since the seventh century, originally to indicate rank and social hierarchy but, over time, their significance has broadened to include all manner of designed objects. This landmark volume celebrates a curated selection of 200 colours (iro in Japanese), with each traditional shade illustrated by one or more items ranging from 16th-century kimonos to contemporary chairs, humble kitchen utensils to precious ceramics  providing a unique route to a deeper appreciation of Japanese design. Expertly bound in a traditional Japanese style, this stunning book is a beautiful design object in its own right and is a must-have for all lovers of design.
