This Wednesday’s excerpt comes from Shogo Oketani and Leza Lowitz’s new book, “Kanji Box: Japanese Character Collection.” Bold, visual, profound, symbolic: Japanese kanji characters communicate powerful graphic messages that look great on skin, walls, stationery, T-shirts, and more.
Here are dozens of edgy, targeted characters hand-picked to help you find the inner you and express yourself in a distinctive stylish way. With cultural clues, readings, font varieties, and ideas for proper use. Here's an example of how Oketani and Lowitz linguistically break down such Japanese characters as “kindness” to reveal its etymological roots.
