A few years ago I decided that I wanted to produce items with an Asian influence. To get more information and ideas, I browsed around Amazon and found this title. Seemed like it might be what I wanted. Indeed it is.

It covers eight countries (and various regions) from India to Korea. Each chapter discusses general style of furniture and factors that contributed to that area’s style. Then there are many photos showcasing examples.

There are also a couple pages on region wood and tools.

I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to explore Asian furniture styles.

There is little to no information about techniques, so don’t expect any.
