Nice thing is the pictures are great and the text is mostly informative. It does a good basic job of explaining iconography and symbolism as well as setting time frames (pre-Western, Western influence) AND does some geographic context too. The pictures are (unsurprisingly) wonderful. I originally balked at the price, but I have to say the book is worth it.

Gorgeous , exquisitely reproduced color plates from some of the most wondrous examples of Thai art. Concentrates on Sukkothai region, this exquisite book is not only informative but is also a visual pleasure.

Temples of Gold: Seven Centuries of Thai Buddhist Paintings
by Sankti Leksukhum, et al is the first and (so far) only book dealing with South-East Asian culture to deserve my 5 star rating. The commentary is well-researched, easily read and flows hand-in-hand with the breathtaking reproductions of Thai narrative murals of the Sukhothai, Ayutthaya and later Rattanakosin periods. The publisher, George Brazillier, should also be commended on the splendid and meticulous execution and quality of the printing and the excellent choice of format, which make these amazing masterpieces of Thai art spring-up at the reader right from the printed page. Need I say more? If you like the subject matter - definitely go and buy this book.

A sumptuous, huge book of pics that often are better than trying to squint at a high wall in a temple. The text is a pleasure for a non-scholar. The selection of pics is faultless, partic. in the wise use of blowing up small details of the murals. My fave SEA art book.
Centrizius
With solid background in Thai painting and history of art combined with his first-hand experiences seeing the paintings from the sources for over a decade, the author painstakingly weaved all the information you would want to know about Thai traditional painting with his interesting points of view and observations.
