The ceramics collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum is among its greatest glories, unrivalled in its range, diversity and global reach.

Featuring 120 masterpieces, this beautiful book traces the developments in world ceramics from ancient times to the present. Conceived as a visual timeline, it draws together potting traditions from across the globe, showing how they interrelate and how trade and cultural interchange have shaped their histories. Outstanding new photographs reveal an array of stunning pieces—from dramatic Chinese funerary sculpture to exquisitely painted Italian renaissance pottery and boldly modernist wares.
