We're delighted to announce that we'll be taking part in the Attingham Trust Study Programme, "The Horse and the Country House," in England in September. We have in stock some of the books on the program's suggested reading list. A selection of them, plus others that may be of interest, are included in "Featured Books" at the bottom of this page. Quantities are very limited. For other titles related to the program's theme, search by the keyword Attingham, or go to "Browse Horses" and then look through the topics Art, Driving (especially other World on Wheels volumes), Farming, Horses in Society & History, and Hunting. We're happy to ship postpaid to Attingham participants within the United States.

Modern Japanese Ceramics in American Collections

1993. Baekeland, Frederick, and Robert Moes, et al. Modern Japanese Ceramics in American Collections. NY: Japan Society 1993. 206p (120 entries), many photos, many in color. Very good paperbound. ** This important loan exhibition catalogue is a definitive guide to its subject. Covers the development, classical traditions, forms, functions, and production methods of modern (post-1945) Japanese studio ceramics that are owned in the United States, Great Britain (including their representation in the Victoria and Albert Museum), Japanese public collections, and Germany. The texts are by various specialists; Gerd Knapper also provides "a potter's point of view" on western influences. The long entries for the works exhibited are grouped by these themes: traditional glaze styles, Chinese-influenced, nontraditional functional, and ceramic sculpture. Long bibliography of works in western languages and in Japanese. (Item ID: A4905)
