Chinese Publishing, Paperback Book


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.
