Old Japanese Photographs | MAPP

by sbrothier
If you are interested in the field of Japanese photographs as a collector, researcher, dealer, curator or auction house then this book is, quite simply, indispensable. The author has written on and researched the subject for many years and has brought together in one volume the results of exciting new research and also data which has been gathered from long-forgotten and largely inaccessible nineteenth-century sources. Souvenir photographs of Japan, mostly hand-coloured, are extremely collectible today. However, it is usually very difficult to identify the photographer or studio from where they originated. Provided here is a list of more than 4000 such photographs which greatly assists the identification process. Finally, a unique index of over 350 photographers and publishers of Japan-related stereoviews is also included.

Hajime Kimura

by sbrothier
his photographic story is the first subject matter that Hajime would challenge himself to portray. The trigger to his passion dates back to a decade ago, when he was just 21 years old. Sitting in the college library he stumbled upon a book that portrayed the life of an ancient Japanese people living in mountainous ranges, only 30 years ago. The tribe was described as being quite apart from the Japanese society as we know it today. The book left a deep impression that marked him for life...

Architecture éternelle du Japon | Architecture éternelle du Japon - Librairie FATON

by sbrothier
L’architecture japonaise est enchanteresse : harmonie entre jardins et bâtisses, élégance des styles, raffinement des déco­rations, perfection des détails… L’envoûtement s’opère à son apparente fragilité qui fait naître un sentiment d’impermanence. Le message délivré est saisissant : racontant l’éphémère, cette architecture nargue les siècles d’un éternel éclat.

2008 Japanese Whisky, Scotch Blend: The Japanese Whisky King and His Scotch Wife Rita: Olive Checkland: Books

by sbrothier
In the early 1920s, Masataka Taketsuru came to Scotland from Japan to learn how to distil whisky. While in Scotland he married Rita Cowan, of Kirkintilloch, who left Scotland with him to live in Japan for forty years, never to return home. She died in 1961. This is an illustrated story of one man's determination to succeed, both in business and love. It is also the story of a young girl's move to a land far away, of strange customs and even stranger language, her joys and heartaches. It is also the incredible story of how whisky is made to perfection thousands of miles away from its cultural 'home', and the history of its development within Japan up to the present day. Art Of Japanese Joinery: Kiyosi Seike: Books

by sbrothier
This lively introduction to Japanese joinery not only delves lovingly into the unique history and development of Japanese carpentry, but also reveals many secrets of Japanese joinery. Presenting 48 joints, selected from among the several hundred known and used today, this visually exciting book will please anyone who has ever been moved by the sheer beauty of wood. With the clear isometric projections complementing the 64 pages of stunning photographs, even the weekend carpenter can duplicate these bequests from the traditional Japanese carpenter, which can be applied to projects as large as the buildings for which most of them were originally devised or to projects as small as a sewing box.

2007 : Les Leçons du jardin zen: Livres: Erik Borja,Paul Maurer

by sbrothier
Si en Occident la pensée judéo-chrétienne place l'homme au centre du monde, et le dit choisi par Dieu afin de dominer et asservir à son profit la nature sauvage, il n'en est pas de même en Orient, où l'homme fait partie d'un tout au même titre que l'ensemble des éléments. Enfant de cette unicité, nourri de spiritualité, le jardin zen s'offre comme une peinture graphique, et s'inscrit dans un cadrage précis, à contempler depuis un point fixe. Le jardin zen se caractérise par un espace dépouillé et une quasi-absence de végétation qui conviennent à la rêverie méditative. À travers ses visites japonaises (de son propre jardin ou de ses créations), Erik Borja, spécialiste du jardin zen, et Paul Maurer, photographe, nous permettent de mieux comprendre la démarche, et nous donnent les clés du zen... non pour les copier, mais pour les adapter à notre monde. Les Leçons du jardin zen enseignent chacune des subtilités de cet art et répondent à vos questions : Comment saisir les lignes de force d'un site, du jardin sec au pas japonais ? comment composer avec le minéral ? Où implanter l'univers aquatique, symbole de pureté et source de vie (étangs, cascades ou plantes aquatiques ?) ? Et enfin, quels végétaux installer et comment les tailler ? Un voyage au pays de la contemplation. --Rose d'Albi
