Summary
China's renowned art objects, furnishings, and handicrafts have long been sought by collectors and inspired designers. Through 60 emblematically Chinese antiques and items, Things Chinese opens up the world of Chinese culture. The history, cultural significance and customs surrounding these exemplars of Chinese art and material culture come into dazzling focus through detailed descriptions and full-color photographs. Items covered include: o Bamboo furniture o Ivory carving o Snuff bottles o Mooncake molds o Musical instruments o Mahjong sets o Fengshui compasses... Things Chinese brings together China scholar Ronald Knapp, who describes the history and use of these Chinese artifacts in fascinating detail, and Michael Freeman, whose work has appeared in magazines such as the Smithsonian, GEO and Conde Nast Traveler, and here lovingly and richly photographs each item of Chinese design. For lovers of Chinese style, Things Chinese is a treasure trove of riches
