Chinese Calligraphy BHT101


CHINESE CALLIGRAPHY, which introduces the Westerner to a rich and mysterious world, is based on a classic compilation of the Chinese language done in the 18th Century, which determined that all the characters then in use were devised from 214 root pictographs or symbol. Each of these 214 key characters is charmingly explored by Edoardo Fazzioli, both for its etymology and for what it reveals about Chinese history and culture. The characters are marvels of graphic design, and this book shows, stoke by stroke, how each radical is written, and gives examples of how radicals are combined with other radicals and character elements to form new characters. It is a unique approach to understanding the history and philosophy of an ancient culture.
