Published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name at the Asian Civilisations Museum, the book explores the exuberant culture of Korea's Joseon dynasty (1392-1897) through lavish costumes, painted screens, ceramics, scrolls, furnishings, and ritual wares. The objects, all borrowed from National Museums in Korea, include luxuries of the royal court, elegant furnishings for scholar-officials, and images and objects for spiritual sustenance. This profusely illustrated catalogue provides a perfect introduction to Joseon culture and art.
