The elements of japanese design

The elements of Japanese design is a great book containing family crests, heraldry and symbolism. Men used these graphic identifications in battlefield: to be recognized by their owns. But this happened in the 12th century. Later, these signs and symbols became the heraldic emblems of Japan. Unlike the European heraldic, the Japanese one have endured as art and they stand on their quality of design. Feel free to appreciate them and for more, buy John Dower’s book on Amazon here.
