'See/Saw explores traditions in art unique to Japanese culture and thinking, and demonstrates visual tropes from thousands of years ago that are freshly interpreted in anime, manga, photography, drawing, architecture, and design today.

At once engaging and educational, spanning Hiroshige to Sugimoto and beyond, See/Saw is a must-have for the serious art lover as well as the trendsetter who will delight in the sampling, mixing, and artistic homage throughout this comprehensive collection of work.' (Back cover)

Artist biographies included.
