Art by Literati: Calligraphic Carving in Middle Qing China by Hye-shim Yi

"This book makes original contributions not only to art history but also intellectual and sociocultural histories of China. Its innovative analysis of calligraphy as a material practice with multimedia dimensions will be especially welcome by historians of calligraphy and scholars of artisanal cultures. This is also the first major study to appear in English on Chen Hongshou and Yixing teapots, which are fetching astronomical prices in auction houses today. This tightly written and well-illustrated book will delight scholars and general readers alike." —Dorothy Ko, Barnard College
