For 2,000 years, the Chinese have been using the iridescent blue feathers of kingfisher birds as an inlay for fine art objects and adornment, from hairpins, headdresses, and fans to panels and screens. While Western art collectors have focused on other areas of Chinese art including porcelain, lacquer ware, sculpture, cloisonné, silk and paintings, kingfisher art is relatively unknown outside of China.

While Kingfishers today are celebrated around the world from Papua New Guinea, to Australia, Malaysia, England & the USA, their images appearing on paper money & stamps all around the Pacific Ocean, it has been the people of China who have penned poems to these halcyon-feathered creatures, & written songs in turquoise-tinted praise.
Stories, of course, abounded, & Beverley Jackson has woven one of them through the pages of her latest book, & re-enchants us with the visions that have mesmerized emperors, peasants, dowagers, actors, prostitutes, brides & foreigners alike.
KINGFISHER BLUE is a masterpiece, a labor of love unparalleled. If blue is your favorite color; if you have ever looked upon a thing of beauty colored by the feathers of these fabled birds - then you will simply have to put it on your Wish List or purchase your very own copy.
Beverley Jackson always takes you away into the reaches of time, remember her SPLENDID SLIPPERS? She wafts us away into the lives of another people, into magical stories where you learn about all sorts of strange & wondrous things, & with superb photography, gifts you indelible images.
KINGFISHER BLUE deserves a crownful of stars!

I love this book! It has so many absolutely breathtaking images of kingfisher jewelry and art, it's like a dream list of what I would like to have in my life. A dear friend since passed away owned a simply amazing Chinese kingfisher adorned miniature theater, which has since gone to another friend; the most stunning piece I have ever seen outside this book.
This is a book to enjoy for years and years!
