    DescriptionBurmese design, heavily influenced by its proximity to China and India, is a many-layered thing, interwoven with spiritual, religious and political messages. "Burmese Design & Architecture" takes an in-depth look at the entire span of Burmese design, from arts and crafts to both religious and secular architecture. With over 500 full-color photographs and expert insights provided by leading archaeological authorities, this is a must-have for serious connoisseurs of architecture, design or Burma itself.

    Review quote
    "the true heart of Vietnam style, as described in the fine photos and thoughtful text, still emanates from the ancient aesthetic and traditions of the Vietnamese people."--"Los Angeles Times"
