Historical Photographs of Asia 

Language: Hungarian, English
Series Editor: Györgyi Fajcsák
ISSN: 2676-9883

The Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asiatic Art dedicated a special series of books to the publication of historical photographic materials dealing with Asia. Colleagues at Hopp Museum are primarily intent on publishing materials from the museum’s own collection, but they are also open to the presentation of similar photo material preserved elsewhere. Our primary goal is to explore and make publicly available Asian historical photo material, which is little known in our country, in the form of authoritative scholarly publications, in both Hungarian and foreign languages.

Museum Pedagogy Library Series. About Asian cultures for young people

Language: Hungarian
Series Editor: Györgyi Fajcsák
ISSN: 2064-1117

Starting in 2014, the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asian Art launched a new type of publication, which aimed to present Asian cultures authentically, primarily for the young age group in a form of a Museum Pedagogical Small Library. The title, content and form were developed according to a well-thought-out concept: the hardcover publication, which fits in the hand, contains information that is easy to read and absorb, yet provides a wide range of information. It not only talks about the long-ago, historical times, but also introduces the reader to contemporary and forward-looking phenomena. The series of books for young people offers a glimpse into the world of Asian civilizations and cultures, in a non-traditional way. Through writing, language, art, holidays, and sports, the characteristic cultural character that helps to navigate in this diverse world is clearly visible. The illustrations of the volumes are basically made up of photographs of artefacts kept in the collection units of the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asian Art. The volumes always end with a tale or story from a given culture.

The series describes the values of Asian art and publishes research on the collections of the Museum, attempting to promote a better understanding of these collections.

A Buddhizmus művészete. "The Art of Buddhism"
