The Chinese Zodiac : A seriously silly guide, Paperback / softback Book

The Chinese Zodiac : A seriously silly guide Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Anita Mangan

Paperback / softback


From highly-acclaimed illustrator, graphic designer and author, Anita Mangan, comes The Chinese Zodiac, an ideal gift book for fans of astrology and lunar cycles. In this time of self-awareness and self-interest, The Chinese Zodiac takes an alternative and hilarious look at all 12 signs of the Chinese Zodiac, mixing together animal and human facts and drawing on themes such as personality, love, health and lifestyle, school/work to create a fresh and entertaining look at ourselves accompanied by quirky and colourful illustrations in this full-colour gift book. The Chinese zodiac follows the moon (rather than constellations, as in the Greco-Roman zodiac system).

It is divided into a 12-year cycle, with a different animal representing each year.

The philosophy is deeply rooted in Chinese culture, and the zodiac, combined with the principles of yin and yang and the five elements, asserts a remarkable influence over people's decisions and beliefs. The signs include:RatOxTigerRabbitDragonSnakeHorseGoat/SheepMonkeyRoosterDogPig
