Nippon Publications

Education is a key component of the International Nippon Collectors' Club (INCC) mission.
Reading and research are two of the best ways to learn about Nippon. Seeing and handling, of course, are the other important ways to improve your Nippon education. So, where do you turn to learn? The INCC, through our publications, conventions and local chapter meetings, provides an excellent source of current information. Your other guaranteed resource is through reading materials - those books that have been published that deal exclusively with Nippon porcelain. With that in mind, the INCC has put together a list of books that you will find beneficial in learning more about Nippon; although some of the book information is dated, the older publications still present some lovely pieces.
