The images in this book are wonderful, and varied. I rated this Dover Clip Art selection low because there is no description of the images, such as is found in the Dover Electronic Clip Art books Trees and Leaves, and Wildflowers. I'll slap an image of a flower, bird, dragon, or butterfly on a craft project, and feel pretty good about it. But I'm reluctant to use a symbol when I do not know the symbol's meaning.

I also gave this book a low rating because the book is entitled "Oriental" which is such a vague term, it ultimately means nothing. Dover could have taken the time to identify the culture(s) the images are garnered from. ( )
