    Winner of the 2010 COSTA Biography Award. A total of 264 wood and ivory carvings, none of them larger than a matchbox: potter Edmund de Waal was entranced when he first encountered the collection in the Tokyo apartment of his Great Uncle Iggie.

    Almost gave this up but it did improve and I am glad I persevered.
    The book is historical, it introduced me to 'netsuke' and led on to do some research on these delightful carvings. The authors descriptions of buildings makes one look at buildings in a different way.
    . Very interesting interview with author at end.
