KIRKUS REVIEW

Japanese residential architecture from about 1600 to 1850 by the authors of The Roots of Japanese Architecture. They present ""ordinary"" homes (from great manor houses to plain farm dwellings) with emphasis on aesthetics, while they also explore social, geographical and technical influences on the distinctive craftsmanship, style and function of the various houses, shown in 320 fine black and white gravures.
