The Culture of Chinese Seat

( 坐具的文明 )


Text in chinese, illustrations throughout in colour. The book presents 80 exquisitely formed examples of classical Chinese chairs, stools and other seating implements, made predominantly from huanghuali, zitan and hongmu dating to the Ming and Qing periods. The text aims to place Chinese seating implements against the long and storied history of China and Chinese culture, making it a very unique publication for both the scholar and collector alike.
