After the resounding success of the first Japan Tattoo, Japanese calligraphy is back once more in Japan Tattoo 2. In this essential sequel you'll find 400 new kanji, most of which are totally original, along with their Japanese pronunciation, history and meaning over 60 pages arranged by theme: Love, the Zodiac, Flowers, Art, Spirituality, Fantasy, Animals, Precious stones, Numbers, Business, Work, Ancestors, Evolution, the Galaxy and Nature are just some of the topics explored in this special issue! To make the themed pages more complete, we have included some symbols already seen in previous publications, which we could not leave out of this one either. They have been given updated graphics, along with a design following the same theme or interpreted in one of the five Japanese calligraphy styles. You will also find an amazing section dedicated specifically to the calligraphy styles used in Japan, with the same kanji reproduced in five different styles.
