This is the best instruction book on Chinese brush painting. I am trying to learn this art form and have watched DVDs and have a number of books on the subject, but this one is my favorite. It has the only information I could find on how to carve a seal stone. It also has step by step projects for beginers like myself. I was surprised at the more than reasonable price of the book. This is a gem.

Excellent starter

I have many CBP books, but this covers some subjects that are omitted in others. I use it to explain CBP to people totally unfamiliar with the subject.
