Nippon Yusen Kaisha
This time around our feature showcases beautiful, Japan-themed books. When we think of Japan in terms of design and motif, we think of cherry blossoms, Mount Fuji, fans, lanterns, the rising sun, chrysanthemums, geishas and more, all of which makes for some very pretty art.
The Japanese are world-famous for simple, elegant, practical and graceful design, and those elements are reflected nowhere more strongly than in the covers of old books about Japan, or by Japanese authors.
