Shoji are the lovely sliding panels made of wood and rice paper that form walls and room dividers in the traditional Japanese house.
This is the first and only book written by a traditionally apprenticed tategu-shi, or maker of sliding doors. Detailed information is presented on how to construct shoji for the home.
Projects include the common shoji, the transom, and the gakubuchi shoji and toko garasu shoji which have glass panels. Also included is the innovative garasudo, a sliding glass door.
