The paintings in Thai manuscripts, with their lively detail and vibrant colours, form a rich and varied record of the culture of Old Thailand. In this illustrated study, Henry Ginsburg examines the dominant themes and narratives in a wide range of manuscript paintings and discusses the works in their religious, historical and cultural settings, with notes on the evolving style of painting from the earliest surviving 17th-century examples to the present day. An appendix gives a complete list of illustrated Thai manuscripts in The British Library and surveys other major western collections.
