From the publisher:

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 proportions 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 as small as a sewing

About the author:

Kiyosi Seike, Professor of Architecture at the Toyko Institute of Technology,
is also an active architect both in Japan and abroad.  He has published
numerous books and articles on architecture in both Japanese and English.
