The Genius of Japanese Carpentry tells the story of the 1200-year-old Yakushiji monastery in Nara and the dedicated modern-day craftsmen who are working to restore what has been lost to the depredations of time, fire and warfare. Although the full monastery reconstruction will not be completed until 2030, one of the main temples, the Picture Hall, has been completely restored employing the same woodworking technology used to create the original building. This new edition of an architectural classic is by Azby Brown—one of the world's leading experts on Japanese architecture. It contains a new preface and many new text materials and photographs—most of them now available in color for the first time. Azby Brown chronicles the painstaking restoration of the temple through extensive interviews with the carpenters and woodworkers along with original drawings based on the plans of master carpenter Tsunekazu Nishioka. An inspiring testament to the dedication of these craftsmen and their philosophy of carpentry work as a form of personal fulfillment, The Genius of Japanese Carpentry offers detailed documentation of this singular project and a moving reminder of the unique cultural continuity found in Japan.

A remarkable classic work on traditional Japanese architecture and its general integrative quality, the order of space and form, the flexibility of partitions and room functions and other important or unique qualities. The author describes in detail, and with numerous architectural plans and drawings, the influence of the anatomy of the Japanese human body on traditional units of measurement and on house construction. This work is not simply a description of the features of the Japanese house, but "an invitation to probe the possibilities of utilizing this architectural achievement of the Japanese . . . in modern living and building," according to the author, who further believes that the unique features of the Japanese house are better suited to serve as a pattern for contemporary housing than any other form of residential structure.

Finally back in print, Carpentry & Joinery, first published in 1907, is the bible of finish carpentry from a golden era of architectural woodworking. Every aspect of joinery is covered in this book, with more than 1800 engravings and twelve spectacular plates to illustrate the topics. This incredibly comprehensive volume contains chapters on timber; joints; floors; partitions; windows; doors; moldings; tools and more. Each subject is explored, illustrated, and examined first in the simple case and then in fancier and fancier permutations. This is the best instruction ever written that explains the details of both simple and fancy late Victorian architectural woodworking. Whether you are a joiner, restorer, or architect, you will be amazed at the level of practical information, clarity of explanation, and continued utility of this book. Certain subjects which are commonly ignored such as the use of joiner s rods are covered in great detail along with detailed instructions for layout all the various constructions in the book. Because this is such an important book we wanted an expert opinion to put the book in the context of its time. In a new introduction master housewright Roy Underhill compares the instruction in the book with a first hand account of an early 20th century joiner. "We again have the voices of first rate masters at our sides." - Roy Underhill, from his Introduction The original book contained 12 color plates which, sadly, we could not afford to reproduce in color. However we are making a PDF of the color plates available for download http: // Softcover 6 3/4" x 9 5/8" 567 pages plus 12 plates.
