'Arts of Asia"

Recommended Posts

I just got a new book that might be of interest "Arts of Asia materials, techniques styles" by Meher McArthur

 

"This book aops a new approach to the arts of Asia by using the artistic materials themselves as the starting point for each chapter It is intended as an introduction to some of the principal materials used in Asian art-jade,silk porcelain, lacquer, ivory, bamboo, paper, gold,wood and stone..."

It has over twenty pages on each material and gives a short description of techniques. There are over 400 color pictures from many cultures

 

You can see a sample from the book at one of the big online book dealers.

 

Because it is a survey book it may be more superficial than many of you will want and I don't think I would pay full retail price. But it is definitely an interesting book filled with inspiring pictures.
