ACM Treasures, a new collection highlights book from the Asian Civilisations Museum, follows the structure of the museum's permanent galleries, with sections dedicated to Trade, Faith and Belief, and Materials and Design. Within each section, chapters mapping onto present and future gallery spaces present art objects from each gallery of the museum. The reader will find that many of the objects are cross-cultural, meaning that they are hybrid - "east-west" or "east-east" sorts of things - essentially mixed, just like Singapore and many of its residents. Nearly 200 objects are in full colour, each with a short explanation. This book a perfect gift or memento of a visit to the ACM.
