Label art of the Chinese world 1890-1976.


Label art of the Chinese world 1890-1976.

Cahan, Andrew S.

Schiffer Publishing Ltd.


160 pages




In this lavishly-illustrated volume, Cahan, a collector of Chinese ephemera introduces, Chinese product labels and advertising graphics printed from the 1890s to the late 1970s. While in Chinese Label Art (Schiffer, 2006), Cahan organized his examples by the subject matter of their images and trademarks, here sections are grouped by motifs and icons (e.g., Buddhist and Taoist symbols), then by manufactured product--both traditional (e.g., firecrackers, tea, incense) and Western-influenced (including records, harmonicas). Includes a bibliography/suggested reading.
