Book edited by David Kamansky, contributing authors: David Kamansky, Luca Corona, Camilla Hulse Corona, Jonathan Bell, Dale Gluckman, Ian Alsop, Tony Anninos, John Listopad, Ruth Hayward, Geshe Lobzang Tsetan with Kathleen Kernell, Stephen Markel and Pamela Logan.

Some of the Tibetan furniture illustrated in the book Wooden Wonders: Tibetan Furniture in Secular and Religious Life are now in LACMA's permanent collection, and may be seen in LACMA's exhibition Pictorial Relationships in Tibetan Thangka Painting and Furniture, Part II: Animals.

The book features masterpieces of Tibetan furniture design and decoration in all its forms, the 148 works are drawn from  public and private collections in the western United States, and were found as a result of an active interest in the preservation and research of this long overlooked Tibetan art form.

This showcases both the aesthetic significance of these exceptional works of art and the important role they have played over the centuries in the daily and spiritual lives of the people of Tibet. Each work is accompanied by details of type, date (supported in several cases by Carbon 14 testing), dimensions and description of decoration and materials.
