Description
Bold, iconic designs have been used to symbolize family names in Japan from the time of the court nobles in the 12th century. The sense of "family" has changed in modern times, but the high-contrast motifs and simple geometries of these family crests—called kamon—are right at home in logo-emblazoned Japan, expressing old cultural interests and ideals in symbols like cherry blossoms, well buckets, and floating clouds. This book presents more than 850 kamon, with descriptions, cultural backgrounds, and a selection of photographs showing how crests are used on banners, signs, and buildings.
