Calligraphy has been a revered art form in China for centuries but has changed dramatically since Mao Zedong established the People's Republic in 1949. Twenty-five people are presented in individual chapters describing their lives and their development of the art of calligraphy in a more contemporary genre. With 180 color and 20 black and white illustrations. Very fine.
