Calligraphy is often regarded as the purest manifestation of an artist's inner character and level of cultivation, as well as the expression of his soul, inner thoughts, and feelings. This volume presents some 58 Japanese works from the remarkable collection formed over the last 40 years by Barnet and Burto, literary scholars who became enraptured by the Japanese art of the brush.

Spanning more than a thousand years from the Nara period (710-784) through the nineteenth century, the material includes sublime early sutras, an extraordinary mandala, seminal works by such renowned figures as Myoe, Koetsu, Muso, Konoe, and Daishin, engaging poems and letters, and powerful graphic statements by Zen monk artists.
