Picture Chinese: Art as Language by Sukming Lo

This fascinating book features over three hundred original full-color illustrations-each one depicting the pictographic and artistic origins of a particular Chinese character. It shows how ancient Chinese pictures were derived from actual images and events, gives examples of their use, function, and shared and unique characteristics, and illustrates how the ideas, patterns, and shapes they represent are at the root of the Chinese written language as we know it today. By examining Chinese characters in this way, one gains a deeper understanding and appreciation for the artistic foundations of written Chinese.
