Introducing a yixing picture book...
上好紫砂器 (High Quality Zisha Wares)
Published：1994 (reprinted 2013)
Condition : As New (from publisher)
This book covers zisha wares from mid qing to modern times. Language is Traditional Chinese but there is almost no text. I shall skip all the fillers and go straight to the good points of this book.
The biggest selling point of this book is the way the book is arranged in the zaoqi(1950-80) and modern sections. It is sorted by the potters, for example, Jiang Rong. There would be a few examples of each potters' work.
Secondly, this book doesn't only cover the most famous artists but also many of the 2nd tier as well(they are the top end now). Here is part of the index.
This is a big hardcover picture book with good examples from the body of works of the contemporary artists. It is a good reference to all yixing collecters but I feel it is one of the most excellent one to those who has interest in mingjia(famous artists) pots.
