Review by Ben Bullock

A classic Japanese calligraphy dictionary containing the five calligraphic forms, kaisho, gyousho, sousho, tensho and reisho with examples from famous Chinese and Japanese calligraphers.

Boxed copies in good condition can be found in many second-hand bookshops in Japan for one or two thousand yen.
