According to the foreword "The Practice of Copying in Japanese Art" by Melissa Rinne, the associate curator of Japanese art at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, this book emphasizes the significance and functions of copying tradition in Japan. Rinne explains how a "copy (in Japanese, utsushi, mosha, or mozo) of an existing artwork might be made for a variety of purposes," by giving several historical examples, such as the Two World Mandalas in the Jingoji temple in Kyoto and the treasures stored in the Shosoin depository in Nara. By replicating the works of predecessors, the traditional techniques and style, and the accompanying aesthetic considerations are accurately conveyed.
