Beautiful blend of history and art
Having read some 30 books on Chinese history and art before taking a trip to China this summer, I find Scarpari's book absolutely the single best book for an understanding of ancient China. The illustrations are absolutely remarkable. To say that they enhance the text is a gross understatement.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

What a fantastic book! Some of the best pictures of the ancient Chinese life that I've seen in a compilation, and it puts to rest any lingering questions about how the articles fit into Chinese culture. One of the best of the best.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
