    Non-informative, visial refer only.

    The reveiwer before me was very kind in my opinion. This books states that it is a price guide and referance, when it is far from that. It is only a coffee table book with good photos. There is very little real information written into the pages and an unitelligable price guide at the end which only includes a few of the pieces pictured in the book. If you are trying to learn about Japanese porcelain, this is NOT the book to read or spend your money on. I am in a search to find a book that IS what this books describes itself to be. I have never written a reveiw before, but, I was SO disappointed with this book that I am doing so. My two stars are only for the photos. Informationally, relative to it's description, this book rates about 1 star. I am shocked at Schiffer for allowing this description to be provided for this book and plan to write the company directly too - seems very close to false advertising to me.

    Beauty With Few Words

    I wish I'd had a review of this book available to me prior to purchasing it. I'd hoped to find a book that provided more historical background, detailed explanations of the various styles, things to look for when purchasing, etc.; i.e., specifics! That's not what this book was 'written' to do. In fact, there is very little 'writing' in the book. What it DOES have are some of the most beautiful photographs and examples of Japanese ceramics you could ever hope to see in one place. I cannot recommend this book as a primer in Japanese ceramics. I CAN recommend it as an important, Visual, companion book to those more detailed informational studies. This book is excellent just lying on an entertainment-room table for guests to peruse. The photographs are super, and the ceramics that are displayed are fabulous!
