Face Painting in Chinese Opera

£90.00

Product description

Bookseller: Oxfam Bookshop Aberdeen Dust wrapper a little rubbed with a small area of light staining to base of spine and a couple of scratches to the back but no tears or loss.
Book is clean and tight.
Lavishly illustrated book on Chinese art.
Over 12" - 15" tall.
