From the publisher- "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."
