Buchbeschreibung CADesign, Hong Kong, 2013. First edition. Quarto. Hardcover in slipcase. New. 240 Pages, 288 illustrations in full colour, 2 maps of China, 5 line-drawings. Chinese and English text. The focus of the book is on 'saddle rugs', i.e., under- and top-saddle rugs, saddle flaps and horse-blankets (shabracks), made of felt, woven textile, leather, pile-knotted wool, silk or cotton. The story is based on the outcome of the author's research into representations of saddle rugs in Chinese painting and sculpture as well as in the applied arts. By comparison of these images with the published preserved saddle rugs, a useful typology could be developed, which is backed up by the results of a structural analysis of preserved specimens. By this new typology preserved saddle rugs, which are many, can be properly dated and ascribed to their place of origin. In order to reach the widest possible public this bilingual book, in two volumes, is published in English and Mandarin Chinese. PRE-ORDER your copy today. Available from May 1st 2013.
