"A fun and colorful visual feast, as well as an engaging cultural study of Thai beliefs and popular design." - Shambhala Sun

"Meticulously produced by River Books and split neatly into themed chapters, it's a fun and fascinating ride."  - Bangkok 101 Magazine 

"Konstanz has compiled the best of his photos of Buddha images, lucky charms, and pop culture paraphernalia that sit on dashboards and dangle from rearview mirrors in Bangkok cabs."  - Tricycle

Format: Paperback
This colorful ride through Thai spiritual decorations is both fun and informative. I have been to Thailand numerous times and must say that the photos make me feel like I have just hopped into a taxi headed for Victory Monument. Plus the text tells a lot about what the statues and stickers all mean. Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Thai or Southeast Asian culture.

.....given the rich outrageousness of many Bangkok cab shrines I've enjoyed from the back seat, these pics seem a little on the only very good side, on average.

However, 'not too many books about SEA vernacular buddhist art, the text is great, and the price for a big book of this quality is super reasonable.
