After giving a history of the art in Japan, Chambers focuses on the work of four modern masters. With final chapters on methods and materials, and the work of Don Guyot, the preeminent American practitioner. With an excellent and up-to-date list of Sources of Materials, a Bibliography and Sources of the Illustrations. Very fine.
