I'm currently taking my first course in Asian Art history, and I wish we were using this text! The Art of East Asia is eloquently and insightfully written and stunningly produced. The authors do an excellent job of bringing the art into the historical and cultural contexts of the time periods when it was produced. The color photographs are plentiful, large, and beautifully printed -- this is an important point, as black and white photos fail to capture the details of either fine brushwork or three dimensional pieces. This book is a tremendous value; it is far superior to other volumes costing almost twice as much. The only limitation to be aware of is that it does not include the art of India.

This was a book I bought for an Asian Art class @ Fullerton College. The class was cool but I failed it because I was busy hollering at girlies and being a stoner. I kept it though its fun to look @ sometimes and I'm big into eastern philosphies which is what inspires most of the art.

"The Art of East Asia" is not only a massive (5kg) collection of superb photos, a feast for the eye, the text is informative and interestingly written, giving images of the way of living from prehistory to present cultures in Asia.
Full 5 stars.

Bought this book for a college class and never opened it because I got As without doing the reading because the teacher was really enthusiastic about talking about the content. But opened it after finals and it's a beautiful book with a lot of detail! Especially worth it seeing as it was triple the price at my bookstore!
