This is a luscious book and a generous one. Paul Lewing has written a very readable, comfortable narrative and the book is visually stunning. A huge amount of information is packed between the covers. He holds nothing back, giving everything he knows and he knows a lot. He not only is tackles the subject full-on from the origins and progression of china decoration through time and cultures, there's a complete data dump of technical aspects; tools, chemistry and technique.
The book is printed on heavy-duty slick (magazine-like) pages and is filled with beautiful color photographs. Makes ya want to run, RUN to your studio and start working! You may need two copies. One to keep pristine in your house and one to paw over in the studio!

Great book. I recommend it to anyone doing china painting. New techniques, artists, and very easy to read sections you need not whole book. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Suzanne J Andersen
You better know HOW to use china paint before you buy this, not very good as an instructional guide. More of a coffee table book in my opinion. Nice pictures, but not much else.Published 12 months ago by B. Martinez
