Praise

“Absolutely incredible book. Highly recommended.” —Circle of Light

“An indispensable reference manual for anyone interested in Tibetan art.” —Parabola

“At last this wonderful 1984–86 ‘how to’ book has been reprinted. Every possible aspect is covered, firstly the history of Tibetan art, its place in Tibetan culture, the teachers and the artists, before we get to the basics, from preparing the painting surface to the measurements, the symbols, the borders—and the conservation. So much in one book that every aspiring artist will want.” —Mandala Magazine

“This book contains a wealth of fascinating information about thangkas and the artistic culture of Tibet and affords a rare glimpse into the way of life of the artists themselves. . . . It comes as close as is reasonably possible to providing art students with accurate guidelines to gain at least some skill in the techniques. A work as well researched, clearly presented, and fascinating as this will certainly be enjoyed not only by artists but also by anyone with an interest in Tibetan cultural traditions.” —The Tibet Journal
