About the Authors
  • As the birthplace of moveable-type printing, China has some claim to being the homeland of publishing. China's ancient civilisation has nurtured a distinctively Chinese publishing industry, and this industry has done much to spread Chinese ideas and culture around the world. Yang Hu and Xiao Yang provide a comprehensive introduction to the origins and development of printing and publication in China from ancient to modern times, complemented throughout with full colour illustrations.

    • An accessible introduction to the history of publishing in China
    • Written by a leading Chinese expert whose work is not widely available in the West
    • Full colour illustrations support the discussion throughout
