Ten Bamboo Studio Letter Papers
Complete four volume set of the Chinese masterpiece of colour printing and design, 十竹斋笺谱. This stunning collection of paper samples is presented in its original pictorial silk brocade folder.
This set includes nearly 300 prints in 30 categories of different objects, motifs, and subjects of traditional Chinese scholarly interest such as flowers and rocks, poetic scenery, bronzes, mythological animals, bamboo, etc. Among them, 73 illustrations have been made using the special Chinese technique of "gonghua" [拱花] or stamped embossing technique. Most of these extraordinarily beautiful images are delicate water-colour woodblock prints [木版水印] while others, which at first glance appear blank, feature equally delicate embossed decorative "gonghua" designs.
