Chinoiserie by Dawn Jacobson. Phaidon, 2007.

Soft covers, 240 pages, sumptuously illustrated. Very good, almost as new, condition.

Chinoiserie is one of the strongest, most consistent strains in western taste. It has affected every area of décor and design, transforming furniture and garden follies, tableware and tapestries.

The style’s origins lie in the extravagant tales of Marco Polo and the merchant adventurers of the seventeenth century.

Chinoiserie carefully follows the development of the style from its tentative origins up to its pervasive influence today. The sumptuous illustrations are a window onto its range and variety, its past and present use in gardens, interiors, furniture and all the applied arts, providing a comprehensive view of the way in which the exoticism of the East became incorporated into European taste.
