The first volume in the Encyclopedia of Asian Design series, The Encyclopedia of East Asian Design is the first comprehensive publication to focus on East Asian design and its histories. Addressing the histories and contexts of design in China, China’s Autonomous Regions, Hong Kong, Japan, North and South Korea, Macao, Mongolia, and Taiwan, the Encyclopedia provides in-depth, critically informed coverage of craft and design practices, products, and the interpretive issues pertaining to them, from 1500 BCE to the present. The work is organised by country to reflect specific regional and national histories and geographies. Within these geographies, traditions, histories, theories and practices as well as key issues in modern and contemporary design are considered. The topics covered in this volume range from ceramics and textiles, interior and architectural design, to environmental and sustainable design.
