Chinese people made many great inventions in history, among which papermaking, printing, gunpowder and the compass have the most far-reaching global impact and are acknowledged as the Four Great Inventions. The invention of printing is China抯 greatest contribution to human civilization, which not only accelerates the spread of information and knowledge but also keeps promoting social progress. The art of printing has, therefore, been called the mother of civilization.

A Concise Illustrated History of Chinese Printing offers a comprehensive overview of the origin, development and application of printing in China from ancient times to the last Chinese dynasty that ended in the early twentieth century. The book discusses, in detail and with full color illustrations, the two major printing types in China -- block printing and movable-type printing, with emphasis on printing technology and the contents printed. There are also sections on art appreciation of ancient Chinese book editions and book collection.

Luo Shubao was editor-in-chief of China抯 Printing Technology magazine, deputy editor-in-chief of the Printing Industry Publishing House, and deputy director of the China Printing Museum. His book-length publications include An Illustrated History of Printing in Ancient China, Light of Printing, Three Thousand Years of Chinese Books, and The History of Book Printing in Ancient China. He has presided over many overseas exhibitions on the history of printing, including the "Printing in Ancient China" exhibition held at the Gutenberg Museum in Germany.

Readers will learn fascinating facts about the Qin army of more than two thousand years ago and get answers to many intriguing questions such as: Who discovered the terracotta army sites and whose decision it was to excavate them? How were the terracotta warriors lined up and how the military arrays were deployed? How did the infantry, cavalry and chariots coordinate in operation? What was the armament like? The book also discusses the elaborate art and techniques of making terracotta warriors and horses. Through the author抯 narrative reconstruction of the valiant and luxury life of the First Emperor, readers will get acquainted with the intricacies of the ancient Chinese civilization.

This volume contains over 200 engraving and watercolor works in a variety of motifs and themes, which had an impact on art circles and evoked a response in society. They are manifestations of high artistic standard of the creators and their cultural values stand to the test of time.

Since the start of reform and opening up in the 1980s, a lot of great works, which are creative in concept and form, have sprung up in China.

During this period, multicultural coexistence arose rapidly in Chinese fine arts and influenced Chinese society deeply. The 30-year evolution of Chinese art shows the conflict and fusion of eastern and western cultures. The development of comprehensive media is gradually changing the categorization of art in the traditional sense. However, the achievements of Chinese art in 30 years are mainly reflected in the internal development of different artistic forms, which seems to indicate that transition to modern art is a historical process.

Chinese Art since 1980 (in six volumes) includes traditional Chinese painting (1 & 2); oil painting (1 & 2); engraving and watercolor; sculpture, pottery art and mural in contemporary Chinese art since 1980. It showcases 1,300 artworks by 1,250 Chinese artists, with an introduction to the artists and their works.

This volume contains over 200 traditional Chinese paintings in a variety of motifs and themes, which had an impact on art circles and evoked a response in society. They are manifestations of high artistic standard of the creators and their cultural values stand to the test of time.

Since the start of reform and opening up in the 1980s, a lot of great works, which are creative in concept and form, have sprung up in China. They mirrored the development process of the society and integrated into the global style and trend. During this period, multicultural coexistence arose rapidly in Chinese fine arts and influenced Chinese society deeply. The 30-year evolution of Chinese art shows the conflict and fusion of eastern and western cultures. The development of comprehensive media is gradually changing the categorization of art in the traditional sense. However, the achievements of Chinese art in 30 years are mainly reflected in the internal development of different artistic forms, which seems to indicate that transition to modern art is a historical process.

It has been four years since Chinese Kunqu Opera has been awarded the title "Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity" by UNESCO. As a masterpiece of Chinese classic opera, Chinese Kunqu Opera has gone far beyond the bounds of territory and is today acknowledged the world over. Chinese Kunqu Opera is an old Chinese opera form with a history of 600 years. To further understand its value, we can approach it from three aspects: the dramatic literature, the musical tradition and the performing art system. Chinese Kunqu Opera represents the highest level of Chinese classic theatrical literature, the last heritage of classic music as well as the perfect performance of classic operas.

The work "Chang Sheng Dian" tells of a legendary romance between Emperor Tang Ming and Imperial Concubine Yang. It presents the fine art of Kunqu Chuanqi creation and has become a model for Kunqu Chuanqi creation in structure, character, language and rules and forms of poetry.

The work "Tao Hua Shan" tells a romance of the Ming Dynasty. In particular, the author had made active exploration into the Kunqu Chuanqi creation and achieved an extremely high level in literary depiction.

揊rench抯 photos are intimate, unadorned, black-and-white. They capture moments at the center of a Chinese city in a way that is faithful to those of us who know these places, without resorting to the usual Porsche-beside-a-donkey images of today抯 China. It抯 Shanghai, but I prefer the ones that are placeless梩he photos with no Chinese script to give them away: the alley portraits and sidewalk scenes that could be Helen Levitt抯 New York, where the settlers were from County Cork not Hunan Province, but who wore similar anxieties and aspirations on their faces.

揗r. Qiu's verses and prose (written in, or about, the persona of the fictional Chen) now complement the indelible photos of Howard W. French in "Disappearing Shanghai: Photographs and Poems of an Intimate Way of Life" This is a fine potential gift, a work that pleases aesthetically and that documents the crowded streets and ragged rooms of a down-and-out quarter of Shanghai, poor in funds but rich in spirit.

揥e get no clich閐 pictures of a beggar in front of a Louis Vuitton mural, no workers looking uncomprehendingly at a Bentley pulling into a five-star whatever. Instead we are thrust deeply into ordinary people抯 lives, into their tiny living rooms with moldy walls and faded curtains. We see them living out on streets of cracked sidewalks and crumbling facades. We watch them sitting and waiting in poses of leisure. The transience and decay tells us that all this is vanishing.

A Shanghai That Didn抰 Last by Howard French

Book Description:

This book is a photographic exploration of life in the old and rapidly disappearing quarters of Shanghai, with accompanying poems and essays by the author of fiction and poetry, Qiu Xiaolong.

The photographs, all taken in a documentary style over a period of five years, represent an intimate and invaluable visual natural history of a way of life in the workers quarters and other central districts of the city that held sway throughout the 20th century and into the early years of the 21st century, before yielding to the ambitious ongoing efforts at urban reconstruction.

Mr. Qiu, whose best-known books are largely set in this old city, where his protagonist Inspector Chen walks around in investigations, is suited like few others to provide a lyrical accompanying text whose purpose is to celebrate the life, beauty and texture of this world before it has vanished altogether.

No photographer has pursued this subject with more dedication and persistence than Mr. French, whose photographs of Shanghai have been exhibited on four continents. Taken together, the work of these two contributors offers compelling esthetics and lasting historical value for lovers of Shanghai, past, present and future.

AUTHORS

Howard W. French is an associate professor at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. Howard is a former foreign correspondent and senior writer for the New York Times, where he worked from 1986 to 2008. He was the newspaper's Shanghai Bureau Chief from 2003 to 2008. He is the author of A Continent for the Taking: The Tragedy and Hope of Africa, which was selected as book of the year by several newspapers. He is also author of a forthcoming book about China's relationship with Africa.

Qiu Xiaolong is a writer who has published, among others, six novels featuring Inspector Chen, including Death of a Red Heroine, which won the Anthony Award for best first novel in 2001. His book, Years of Red Dust, a collection of linked stories in Shanghai, was on the list of Publishers Weekly Best Books of 2010. Qiu was born and raised in Shanghai, where he was a renowned poet and translator. He came to the United States in 1988 and holds a PhD degree in Asian Studies from Washington University.

Praise for Howard W. French抯 Photography

"It抯 not often a writer learns to make photographs. Howard has, big time. These rooms glow with light. The intimacy of stepping into a bedroom; a child reads on the bed, a father, with his laptop, a room of mahjong players, grandpa crashed on a chair, the TV always on. These are tiny spaces, intensely alive in black and white, the future of towering apartments looming outside, the market in the street, the Brooklyn burst of pigeons, crossing the old Shanghai neighborhood, the beds and people on them filling half the room. All doomed to live forever in these gentle loving docs."
桪anny Lyon, Photographer, author of Memories of Myself, and Deep Sea Diver: An American Photographer's Journey in Shanxi, China.

"Looking at Howard French抯 Shanghai, one thinks of Eug鑞e Atget and Berenice Abbott, photographers who captured Paris and New York on the cusp of great change. This is ambitious work, with compositions that are balanced and tight, with beautiful light, devoid of hard shadows, that renders the old Shanghai in vibrant detail. We should thank the photographer for realizing that no number of articles written about these communities could ever bring us this close to the lives he has immortalized on film."
桲en Light, Photographer, author of Valley of Shadows and Dreams and Witness in Our Time: Working Lives of Documentary Photographers

"Within a decade of the invention of portrait photography, studios up and down Broadway offered ordinary people the possibility of preserving their own visages for a modest sum. In 1846, Whitman had a chance to see, in one of those studios ("Plumbe's Daguerreotype Establishment"), rows and rows of such faces, of persons unknown, persons that, he knew, would soon be part of a vanished world, of whom the only record might be those very pictures. He was stunned by this new way of seeing and sympathizing with human life, and called it, in a marvelously apt phrase, an "immense phantom concourse." The images in Disappearing Shanghai contain the same fine surprise. French's images are freed from the dramatic needs of a news report. With a quiet testimonial force similar to the photographs of Atget, they bring us the deeper drama of mundane life. The cumulative effect of the images, all taken in the same half dozen neighborhoods of the city, is of how rich the substance of human experience is, and how reliably it is to be found cheek-by-jowl with insubstantiality, with what is already passing, or possibly already past."
桾eju Cole, from the Preface

Praise for Qiu Xiaolong抯 Poems

揟he poems herein, bare-edged, allusive, ironic, original and passionate, lay claim to the attention of all those devoted to our art.
桵ona Van Duyn, U.S. Poet Laureate

揫The book] is filled with beautiful descriptions and poetry (Chen is poet as well as detective) that reinforce the beauty that is being polluted and lost. Magnificent.
桟onnie Fletcher, *Starred Review*, Booklist

揥ith a poet抯 eye and ear, Xiaolong Qiu rendered them into poetry in English.
桯a Jin, Author of Waiting

揟he physical and the intellectual sides of his nature interweaves in this new collection of his poems; they arrest the reader抯 attention, to show us new edges of the mind, and of many realms of human experiences. These are the mature work of a master whose creativity is fully unleashed.
桼obert E. Hegel, Liselotte Dieckmann Professor of Comparative Literature, Professor of Chinese and Chair, Washington University in St. Louis

揂 distinguished poet in his native China, Qiu Xiaolong distinguishes himself in his English-language poems by his ability to observe and synthesize the most telling details of both cultures, which he knows so well. This book shows the intimate side of the well-known mystery writer.
桟atherine Rankovic, author of Fierce Consent

Farmer painting has been an important cultural phenomenon in China. The rural folk paper-cutting, which has prevailed in the regions of the Loess Plateau of northern China, remains an important symbol of folk life until now. And it represents a profound tradition and design wisdom. In dexterous hands, a pair of scissors can swiftly cut out anything in the world from paper, showing the emotional feelings of ordinary Chinese people. This book contains the artworks from about 140 farmer artists in China抯 Zhejiang province.

When it comes to farmer painting, the identity of the artist is prior to the artwork itself. In the relation between the painter and his work, the study of the identity of the painter is more critical than the painting itself. Farmer painting maintains a dream, which manifests a vivid relation between art and people. In China, farmer stands for not only an occupation, but also agriculture, which is closely related to nature, conventional tillage and rural areas that see a strong continuity of folk life for thousands of years.

This is Vol. 2 of the Artists of Zhejiang, China series.

Luo Xianyue, born in 1960 in Lin抋n, graduated from the Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts in 1986 and from the watercolor senior seminar of the China Academy of Art in 1999, is a member of the China Artists Association, a member of the Watercolor Painting Committee of the China Artists Association, vice chairman and secretary-general of the Zhejiang Artists Association and vice chairman of the Zhejiang Watercolor Artists Association.

Xu Jin抯 paintings are characterized by stylish composition, impressive colors, and fine lines. They not only demonstrate a natural integration of verse, calligraphy, painting and seal, but also a fine combination of Chinese and Western painting skills. His figure paintings display the artist's virtuoso command of the techniques of traditional Chinese painting as well as his encyclopedic knowledge of Chinese history and literature, embodied in his depictions of artists, poets, military heroes, famous beauties, and deities. They also combine the finesse and technical polish with the more spontaneous, calligraphic gestures of Chinese literati painting. Learn More...

Pan Honghai was born in Shanghai in 1942, graduated from the Oil Painting Department of Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts in 1967. He once worked in the Zhejiang Painting Academy as the vice-president and president successively, and is currently its honorary president. He is also one of the national class one artists and a member of the China Artists Association.

Pan抯 oil painting unites the meticulous and realistic style of the classicists and the use of rich colors by the Impressionists, aiming at reproducing lifelike figures and the beauty of light and colors. In his painting, he lays stress on spatial comparison and the point that painting techniques and colors should all work for the motif of the painting. He believes a painter should not only express himself in his paintings, but also take into account the experiences and needs of the viewers. Besides, Pan is also adept in portraying classical Chinese beauties and country landscapes characterized by rich national culture and spiritual essence. In his paintings he gives a vivid and detailed picture of the fairness, amiability and gentleness of Chinese women. His paintings are not only his emotional release, but fine artworks with social attributes, universal values and academic values.

This is Vol. 3 of the Artists of Zhejiang, China series.

Sun Yong is a Chinese landscape painter. Born in 1957, Sun graduated from Zhejiang Art Academy in 1981, majoring in traditional Chinese art. He is now president of Zhejiang Painting Academy, member of the Chinese Artists Association, and the national class one artist.

In Chinese classical philosophy, nature and man are believed to coexist, and sometimes can even be made into one. Anyone who communes with nature can be called a philosopher. Those who can express such supreme realm of life experience in their paintings are treated as great Chinese painters. In this regard, they are all philosophers. Sun is a true Chinese landscape painter in this sense.

Sun reaches the quietness of the humane through the activeness of the wise. He practices the humanistic care with wisdom, and demonstrates his spirit and mind between the activeness and quietness. No wonder he 搒ees the meaning of the world and life. That is exactly the key idea of the painting of Chinese landscape philosophy: Clear your mind and heart to realize the highest truth of the universe. The dynamic is with the static, rivers with mountains, happiness with lives, and wisdom with morality. All of these come from the peace of mind, which is the great source of wisdom.

This is Vol. 4 of the Artists of Zhejiang, China series.

Since the early 20th century, Zhejiang province in China has been an important region for watercolor painting and its research. In the history of modern art, many preeminent watercolor painters were inextricably linked with Zhejiang province. Since 1989, with the support of Zhejiang Artists Association, Zhejiang Watercolor Artists Association has held seven consecutive terms of National Watercolor Painting Exhibitions in Hangzhou, capital of the province, and Zhejiang has been the hub for Chinese watercolor painting. A great number of watercolor painters at home and abroad actively participated in the exhibitions, which became stimulation to the creative passion of Zhejiang watercolor painters.

The ten watercolor painters included in this book have all been engaging actively in watercolor painting in recent years, and are very successful and outstanding representatives of the young and the middle-aged painters. They have absorbed the quintessence from the works of the older generation of excellent watercolor painters and have been persistent in the watercolor painting and research. Ultimately, creative communities of watercolor painting with different styles and regional characters came into being. With diversified styles and various opinions, these artists strive to the unification of painting techniques and artistic pursuits. This book will help us gain a general knowledge of the current development situation of watercolor art in Zhejiang, and provide a reference for the future development of it.

This is Vol. 1 of the Artists of Zhejiang, China series.
