Six years have passed since A Leisurely Pursuit: Splendid Hardwood Antiquities from the Liang Yi Collection was published in the year 2000. Since that time, ongoing acquisition has added to the depth and variety to this prestigious Hong Kong collection. The number and range of objects now lends itself to separate volumes for huanghuali and zitan furniture, providing the reader to experience the distinctive characteristics of these two parallel traditions; small miscellaneous objects (xiaojian) are grouped together in a third volume.
