The Timeless Heritage of Thailand

 
Jim Wageman (Author)
Synopsis

This rich photographic survey of Thailand’s traditional art and architecture tells the story of the country’s cultural history. From artifacts of ancient pre-Thai civilizations to achievements of the Thai kingdom in the early 20th century, the enduring vestiges and persistent vitality of Thai heritage continue to entice visitors, residents, and researchers.

Photographer and author Jim Wageman traveled to both well-known and little-visited sites throughout Thailand to capture images that convey the breadth and intricacy of the country’s heritage. A retired art director and book designer, Wageman has presented his images in a gorgeous layout that is matched by solid, well-researched captions and explanations. Beautiful and incisive, The Timeless Heritage of Thailand is an outstanding compendium for anyone fascinated by the treasures of Thailand’s cultural heritage.

Foreword by William Chapman, Interim Dean of the School of Architecture, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.

Jim Wageman

Jim Wageman has lived and traveled in Thailand for several years. Additional travels in Southeast Asia have taken him to historic Khmer, Buddhist, and other sacred sites in Cambodia, Myanmar (Burma), and Vietnam. A former award-winning art director and designer at leading illustrated-book publishers in New York, Jim has also served as director of graphic design at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. He is the photographer and author of two previously published books.

What others are saying Jim Wageman’s beautifully illustrated book makes [the] complex tapestry [of Thailand’s architectural and artistic heritage] legible to the first time visitor and the longtime resident. The result is both a visual and intellectual treat.”—from the foreword by William Chapman.
