Our Collection

  • Nepal and Tibet

    Nepal and Tibet

    The arts of Nepal are based both in Buddhism and Hinduism, and this small country found in the heart of the Himalayas is said to be the home of the gods. Nepal and Tibet share a similar artistic heritage in their painted thangkas, yet their sculptural styles in both bronze and wood have very distinct identities with Nepal having an emphasis perhaps on the gentler side of Hinduism and Buddhism, Tibetan art concentrating as much on the darker and more wrathful side of the Gods. Outstanding collections of Tibetan art can be found at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York. For an extensive Himalayan collection see Yale University’s online website

  • India Architecture

    India Architecture

    From the early decorated and sculptural Buddhist cave temples at Ajanta, the great stupa at Sanchi, and the Hindu shore temples at Mamallapuram and the gloriously carved group at Khajuraho, a mixture of architectural planning and sculptural feat.

    The early and medieval religious architecture of India here represented by detailed architectural studies and photographic journey.

     

Asia Fine Books began an exclusively online business in the fall of 2000, with a concentration on rare, reference and selected general interest books on the art and architecture of Asia including China, India, Japan, Nepal, Tibet and Southeast Asia, with a special interest in the arts of Cambodia. We are a member of the IOBA, Independent Online Booksellers Association. The majority of the books in inventory are rare and now out of print. Quality newer titles are included in inventory as they are released, grouped under the subject area and not gathered separately.

Asia Fine Books also carries a collection of antique postcards and laser and silver gelatin prints of scenes in Cambodia and India from the beginning of the last century.

Always accepting single volumes and collections in the field of Asian art and history. I will take your books on consignment and try to get the very best price for you based on value.
