Description
A truly immersive visual tour of modern China, this enormous book is a feast of panoramic photography. Ming Tan's evocative images—the Great Wall in the mist, the roofs of the Forbidden City (with Beijing completely filling the horizon), the red-painted and gold-leafed halls of Buddhist temples, and jagged Himalayan peaks touched with sunlight—are sharply focused and full of vibrant color. Many of them fill two pages (35 x 12 inches), and the book also contains six gatefolds and three double gatefolds, yielding images almost six feet long. First published at $235, this slipcased volume is a supreme example of fine bookbinding, and includes a signed, limited edition print by Tan, suitable for framing.
