By Shozo Sato. Although sometimes confused with
calligraphy, sumi-e instead tries to capture the essence of an
object or scene in the fewest possible strokes. Featuring
gorgeous images and practical advice, this book includes
guided instructions for thirty-five different paintings. It’s
also an all-in-one resource, providing a timeline of brush
painting history, a glossary of terms, a guide to sources and
an index—making it a tool to use and treasure, for amateurs
and professionals alike. Includes instructional DVD.
