If you're looking to add a dash of the Orient to your projects then this book invites you to 'discover' the history and the ways of the kana and kanji characters. From familiarising yurself with the four treasures of calligraphy (the brush, ink, ink stone and paper) to actually writing the characters, uninterrupted, for the most natural, flick-of-the-wrist finishes, this book certainly makes for a fascinating read.
