The Social Life of Inkstones: Artisans and Scholars in Early Qing China

Dorothy Ko

The Social Life of Inkstones: Artisans and Scholars in Early Qing China by Dorothy Ko

An inkstone, a piece of polished stone no bigger than an outstretched hand, is an instrument for grinding ink, an object of art, a token of exchange between friends or sovereign states, and a surface on which texts and images are carved. As such, the inkstone has been entangled with elite masculinity and the values of wen (culture, literature, civility) in China, Korea, and Japan for more than a millennium. However, for such a ubiquitous object in East Asia, it is virtually unknown in the Western world.

Examining imperial workshops in the Forbidden City, the Duan quarries in Guangdong, the commercial...

The Social Life of Kimono: Japanese Fashion Past and Present

Sheila Cliffe

The Social Life of Kimono: Japanese Fashion Past and Present by Sheila CliffeThe kimono is an iconic garment with a history as rich and colourful as the textiles from which it is crafted. Deeply associated with Japanese culture both past and present, it has often been thought of as a highly gendered, rigidly traditional and unchanging national costume. This book challenges that perception, revealing the nuanced meanings and messages behind the kimono from the point of view of its wearers and producers, many of whom Â? both men and women Â? see the garment as a vehicle for self-expression.

Taking a material culture approach, The Social Life of Kimono is the first study...
