The book is well-researched and evenly argued, mobilizing a number of Chinese sources that are translated for the first time. . . . written in a lucid manner accessible to undergraduates and general readers, the book is most beneficial to specialists of Chinese art, print culture, and Republican history. . . . Lufkin’s monograph is a valuable contribution to the field of modern Chinese art history through its specific focus on folk art, a broad category that has yet to receive adequate attention from art historians of Chinese art outside of China.
