"The book structure is modeled after ledger books or chomen, in common use throughout Japan particularly during the Edo period (1603-1868). These long, slender account books were sewn in the stab binding style at one short end and kept handy by hanging the book on the wall from its sewn end. The structure ... repeats this historical model & is meant to be hung on the wall as well. Each book comes with its own nail and is housed in an acrylic slipcase."--Prospectus.
"The type is handset Spectrum with Felix Titling printed letterpress onto Japanese gasen-shi. The handmade paper covers are Egyptian tow flax from Cave Paper. Kanji on ... cover was done in sumi ink by David Brock ..."--Colophon.
Title in Kanji on cover, 'San zendo' can be read to mean: the Zen meditation hall ; sitting in the meditation hall and/ or the periodic question-and-answer session that takes place between student and teacher.--from Prospectus.
