The fascinating story of the history of chess piece design, from ancient Islamic ivory pieces to modern day computer chess sets. From the earliest carved sets, chess piece design has captured the essence of wars and revolution, peace and religion, technology, art and sport, and has mirrored civilisation's development across the globe.Chess pieces and famous chess players have appeared throughout literature, art, cinema and advertising from Shakespeare to Pepsi reflecting suave sophistication and, as Voltaire said, 'most honour on human wit'.Master Pieces looks in detail at over 30 of the most influential sets, spanning 1,000 years of design from five continents, and tells the story of the development of one of the greatest games on Earth.
