Just received a copy of Stephen Selby's new book on Chinese archery called
(appropriately enough), "Chinese Archery."
>From what I've read so far, it's a very complete, well-researched andinteresting book on the subject. It has many color photos and b/w drawings
throughout. Covered in the book is the history of Chinese archery, famous
people involved, rituals, crafting of equipment (bows, arrows, targets),
etc., all the way up to the past century. Some entertaining stories are told
which bring the subject to life.
If you have any interest in Asian archery, horn bows, history of archery,
etc., it would be well-worth your while to look at Stephen's book. You can
read more about it at the Asian Traditional Archery Research Network site
