Product Description


This collection of sketches, illustrations and essays seeks to reflect the evolving character and personality of Hong Kong - an informality in the way its older streets, urban places and spaces are used, and how this encodes the everyday experience of the city through a profusion of visual incident, expression, and an intensity of fragmented features that exude Hong Kong s high density urban values. --Reviewer
