KANJI POWER

Souun Takeda

Kanji is simply defined as pictograms derived from Chinese that are used, in part, for writing the Japanese language. However, it’s not that simple. Japanese artist/calligrapher Souun Takeda has become a national leader in using and interpreting kanji in Japan. He writes about the “charm” of kanji, saying that the physical form of the letters adds meaning to the spoken word. “Kanji enables us to understand their deep meanings that we will never reach just by hearing them.” In this beautifully designed book, Takeda displays his spontaneous and disciplined calligraphy and explains the deep meanings of many words. For students of Eastern cultures, Japanese language or any type of calligraphy. Includes a panel discussion with kanji enthusiasts.
