Всем известно, книги — это лучший подарок. Но в наш просвещённый век, когда беспилотные аппараты бомбардируют небесные тела, в подмогу пыльным фолиантам подоспели обучающие компьютерные программки. И это хорошо, так как отягощённое педагогическим образованием сознание подсказывает: чем интерактивнее и разнообразнее обучение, тем выше усвояемость, воспитанность и общая интеллигентность. Итак, для всех изучающих японский язык, и знакомых с английским, предлагается полная обойма обучающих программ Declan. Всё в одном архиве, со всеми примочками. И еще, о книгах и о подарках. Может быть есть у народа пособия по японской/китайской каллиграфии, т.е. написания иероглифов кистью? Особенно интересуют правила полукурсивного и курсивного написания (гёсё, сосё).

If anyone have books or manuals for Chinese and Japanese calligraphy, please post it on this site or mail me.

Hacker Art Books | English | 1988 | ISBN-10: 9990385696 | 32 pages | PDF | 26.4 Mb

Japanese brush painting is a relatively recent development and emerged out of the Buddhist schools of calligraphy (Shodo). The ancient art of Japanese brush painting, or sumi-e, is strikingly beautiful, simple and pure, yet strong and resonant. Closely related to Zen philosophy, the art of sumi-e is executed with black ink on white rice paper using bamboo brushes. Subjects in Japanese brush painting include landscapes, flowers, or animals, anything that suggests a closeness to the natural world.
Folded Flowers: Fabric Origami with a Twist of Silk Ribbon

"Folded Flowers: Fabric Origami with a Twist of Silk Ribbon", by Kumiko Sudo
Publisher: Breckling Press | 2002 | ISBN: 0972121803 | English | 185 pages | PDF / JPG | 23.9 MB / 14.35 Mb

With a blend of Eastern and Western influences, Kumiko Sudo reinvents fabric origami with 24 new small quilt designs intertwining silk ribbons, cotton, and other fabrics. Choosing two or three Japanese flowers that bloom in each month of the year, each quilt presents an origami flower, its buds and leaves crafted from fabric and ribbon. Six additional purse designs feature a flower for each season. Step-by-step color drawings help make the projects easy to understand and follow. Introductions to each featured flower, lyrical haiku poems, elegant Japanese calligraphy, and watercolor paintings provide a glimpse into the rich cultural heritage that has inspired these designs. Full color photographs of projects in authentic Japanese settings help provide a complete sense of the final product.
