About the Author:

Bradley Quinn is a writer, journalist and curator. He is the co-editor of Merge Magazine and one of the editors of the journal Fashion Theory. Bradley also regularly contributes to magazines and journals on both sides of the Atlantic, including Elle Decoration and Spruce and has given a seminar at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

From Booklist:

Journalist Quinn, with visual assistance from photographer JanBaldwin, captures the essence of Chinese design in a book destined tobelong in much-referred-to shelves, not on dust-gathering coffeetables. This is a panoply of stimulation, starting with anarrative that entrances with sparkling facts: the presence oflanterns as lights or the birth of chairs from a collapsible campstool. And the use of pattern as symbols of long life, riches, peace,love of virtue, and a venerated end of life. Visuals are no lessmemorable, from the materials of architecture to the simple eleganceof utilitarian ceramic objects. Mastering design--and life. ((ReviewedOctober 1, 2003))Barbara Jacobs
