Rose KerrISBN: 1851774157;
Ceramics from China's Song Dynasty (960-1279) have always been prized by both Asian and Western collectors for their pure form, unique glazes, and inventive decoration. This long-awaited survey celebrates the beauty of these ceramics, telling the stories of their making and the material culture in which they were created. The book is illustrated with many of the finest examples of Song ware in the Western world, many of which look astonishingly modern. The text, including research never before published in English, is complemented by newly commissioned photography. AUTHOR BIO: Rose Kerr has recently retired as deputy keeper of the Asian department at the V&A. She is the author of several books on Chinese art and a world authority on Song ceramics.
