General Editor: Haruhiko Fujita, Osaka University, Japan

The Encyclopedia of Asian Design provides authoritative and comprehensive coverage of design and crafts history and contemporary practice across Greater Asia. Volumes I, II and III are regionally focused, addressing design in East Asia, South and South-East Asia and Western and Central Asia respectively and Volume IV explores global and transnational issues in Asian design.

Volume IV of the Encyclopedia of Asian Design focuses on transnational and global design issues. Articles by leading international scholars address issues such as geopolitics, aesthetics, trade and sustainability that have impacted and continue to impact the development of craft and design in Asia.
