Book Suggestion: Blue and White

John Carswell’s copiously illustrated book traces the history and evolution of blue and white in China, first during the Yan dynasty in the 14th century. The 15th century brought ideas and influences from the Islamic world, and from the 16th century on, collecting became a passion and was a major influence. The beautiful illustrations in this book are from museums and private collections around the world, including some never before published.
