This colorful book is primarily concerned with master carpenter Tsunekazu Nishioka, and the work he performed during the final years of his life at the Yakushiji temple complex, and in particular The Picture Hall: a dizzying, complex, and stunning building intricately documented through a series of drawings and photos.

Brackett’s descriptions of his design and construction process, as well as of the wood material he uses, are enticing and provide a lot of technical and philosophical insight. In this post, you’ll find my review of Azby Brown’s The Genius of Japanese Carpentry, and details for how you can enter to win your own copy.
