PingMag - The Tokyo-based magazine about “Design and Making Things” » Archive » The Bunshi School of Edomoji

by sbrothier
What vigorous brush strokes! These friendly looking Edomoji, or “Edo characters,” are traditional Japanese fonts that were developed in the Edo Period (1603 to 1868). Today, they haven’t lost their attraction! Now, PingMag talks to self-taught calligrapher Bunshi Tachikawa who got so much into Edomoji that he threw his experience as graphic designer over board and created a brand new style himself – now known as the Bunshi School of Edomoji. A brand new school!

Without difficulty, Japanese people use a combination of four different types of character systems: kanji,hiragana, katakana, and the English alphabet. This is a very unusual system not seen in any other country in the world. Each of the kanji characters, forming the core of the Japanese writing system, usually serves also as a word. Elements of Japanese culture have been embedded in these kanji characters through their forms and images. In addition,most kanji characters have two or more pronunciations and a variety of meanings.
