That a book is a prestige object is something designer Irma Boom knows better than most .
Almost all the items of China’s cultural heritage presented here – ceramics and porcelain from the Song Dynasty (960-1279) – are small and fragile objects. Even so, taken together, in this impressive book the collection gains weight both literally and figuratively.
Photographs of these objects, along with images of modern China, appear throughout the book.
