This month's Antique Collecting has a focus on Asian art, from demystifying Chinese paintings and a profile of Bonhams' global head to Chinese ceramics, Asaph Hyman; to a celebration of the 150th year marking the start of the Meiji period in Japan and collectable ceramics today. We also take a look behind the scenes of a new exhibition of the early Chinese photographs of John Thomson, the 'father of photojournalism'. Jean-Yves Ollivier has been an ardent collector of Asian art all his life and as some of his treasures head to auction we explore his impressive collection. Elsewhere this month, Marc Allum lifts his hat to metal detectorists, expert Bill Forrest assesses the current Asian art market, while iron collector Penny Savill puts her collection in the spotlight. We also brush up on the market for collecting human hair, join Charles Hanson as he swoons over a 230-year-old love letter and consider the addictive nature of antiquing with dealer Edd Thomas. Lastly, catch up with all the latest saleroom news, upcoming auctions and our round-up of not-to-miss events.
