Learning Chinese is notoriously difficult and has long put off the most linguistically savvy Westerners... until now. Breaking down the Great Wall of language, ShaoLan Hsueh has unpicked Chinese characters and created a simple system for quickly understanding the basic building blocks of the written language. Working with renowned illustrator Noma Bar, she has developed a unique set of illustrations that are engaging and delightful, and offer a glimpse into the wonder of the Chinese language and culture.
This set of three notebooks, each with a different graphical motif, are all artfully packaged and provide the perfect template to practise characters or keep notes of any kind.
'Turns a fiendish world into a visual treat … shines a spotlight of childlike clarity on the seemingly impenetrable world of Chinese ideograms … beautifully illustrated'
