Form and Space of Japanese Architecture. Photographs by Norman F. Carver, Jr.
by [Japanese Architecture] .

Publisher Information:
Shokokusha, Tokyo: 1955.

A Near Fine copy with a previous owner bookplate on the flyleaf in a Near Fine dust jacket with a touch of edge wear. Not a historical survey, the book illuminates principles underlying traditional Japanese architecture's elegant forms & lyrical spaces with examples from renowned palaces to obscure temples --documented during Carver's years in Japan. When first published, critics wrote, "Carver teaches through his camera how to see Japanese architecture from an angle quite new & different...he shows the oldest is akin to the newest"; "...his fresh sense makes even we Japanese find new ways of looking at Japanese architecture which has escaped most people --there is almost no other book of its kind."
