Synopsis: In this perennial top-seller, Japanese design expert Amy Sylvester Katoh introduces stunning interior designs that have successfully blended East and West, traditional and modern. With more than 300 vibrant colour photographs, this tour of exquisite homes in the Tokyo area offers new ideas for decorating the Western home. With its emphasis on traditional and modern styles, this landmark book includes the latest information on antique markets and hints for where to see the art of living.

Review: Longtime Japan resident Amy Sylvester Katoh and photographer Shin Kimura have created a fascinating and educational masterpiece in Japan: The Art of Living. More than 300 pictures of rooms, furniture, table arrangements, stylish windows, and more enliven its pages as they guide the reader on a "photographic tour of exquisite homes in the Tokyo area, focusing on ... antiques and folk crafts."

Katoh counsels readers to break free from some of the rules that govern Japanese style and design and experiment with their own brand of panache--or Japanache, as Katoh calls it. Instead of simply cataloging stylish homes, the author presents a design element, such as tansu chests, with a dozen options and alternatives, providing both ancient ideas and their modern updates. In addition to the superb photos and engaging text, there is also an index of places to buy the featured antiques, textiles, washi paper, screens, and other items, both in Japan and in 11 states in the U.S. If you were a fan of Japanese design before, this book will make you a fanatic. --Jhana Bach
