Austere Luminosity of Chinese Classical Furniture

“Sarah Handler has written a true cultural history of Chinese furniture.  Her book is a highly erudite blend of art history and social history, yet with a structure as transparent and elegant as that of a fine piece of Ming-style furniture.”  MORE...

Ming Furniture in the Light of Chinese Architecture

“Like an engaging companion on a stroll through time, Sarah Handler eloquently guides us through Chinese houses, gardens, literature, and poetry.  Whether pointing out the elegant shape of a column or lifting a gauze curtain to reveal a gracefully furnished bedchamber, she is the perfect narrator for this aesthetic journey.  A sumptuous tome to linger over.”  MORE...
