Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am so glad I purchased this beautiful book. It has stunning photographs of works of art from early pottery to modern ceramics and all the other stunning stuff in between.If you have a love of lacquer work or Kimono there are photographs here with detailed descriptions and explanations that help you appreciate the objects on display even more. I am not by any means an expert on any of these subjects I just LOVE to looking at such beautiful things and there are inro here that take your breath away. A book I will be looking at again and again.
