  • Curator's comments

    The album features 25 facsimile prints of the artist's original works. It can be extnded to a length of 46 metres. It took over 100 days for three skilled craftsmen to ount the prints and carve the slipcase. The creation of the album involved a blending of Eastern and Western paper mounting and paper making techniques.

    The cover of this book has been made with Huon pine, a special slow growing tree from Tasmania that will not rot and was traditionally used for boat building. The trees are currently protected from further felling.See Gordon Barras, 2002, The Art of Calligraphy in Modern China
