Picture Chinese is a fascinating and highly original book, featuring over 300 full color illustrations - each one depicting the origins of a particular Chinese character. It shows how ancient Chinese pictographs were derived from actual images and events, gives examples of their use and function, their 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.
