Reviews - What do customers think about Chinese Ornament?

Not the same book!?!  Apr 25, 2007
The edition I have (same ISBN #) is a 240-page 8.5" by 11" treatise with 200 B&W pictures, 12 color illustrations, and PLENTY of explanatory text and line drawings. Eruidte and informative!
Textile patterns only - no accompanying text  Oct 7, 2006
This small square book was a large disappointment and I am still wondering at what compelling reason called for its publication. It is a short book of, we're told, Chinese and Chinese-inspired textile patterns. Written text is very spare to be virtually absent. It serves to cursorily identify sample groupings from certain historical manufacturers, who were mainly Western.

The author byline is attributed to Jessica Rawson but her name appears no where in the book. Huh?

There is this unattributed preface of about 125 words that attempts to orient the reader but not inform. The reader is mainly left to presume the significance of the picture book she or he has in hand - about 90 pages of color patterns, geometric and otherwise, 30 pages of black and white flower patterns, 15 pages of animal patterns, and 20 pages each of color figure and black and white objects d'art patterns.

If the preface is of any interest it is because it has been translated into 4 other languages - including Cyrillic Russian. Hmmm. Subsequent text presented in English identifies the name of manufacturer, title of the piece, and city and year of manufacture. Thank the anonymous author for that for otherwise the reader would really be swimming in an uncharted sea.

If you are a reader with a specialized and passionate interest in looking at a cross-section of 205 small-format and undramatic pattern swatches that could have inspired William Morris - many examples are early nineteenth century - then this book MIGHT be worth acquiring. It gets 2 stars for you. For the rest of us, I'd highly recommend that you look elsewhere for information on the subject of chinese ornament.
