The "Makunouchi Bento", or traditional Japanese lunchbox, is a highly lacquered wooden box divided into quadrants, each of which contains different delicacies. It is also one of the most familiar images of Japan's domestic environment. Reading the lunchbox as both an object and a metaphor, Ekuan offers a key to understanding Japanese aesthetics, design, and culture. 65 color illustrations.
