It’s Chinese to Me 天书

It's Chinese to me

This is a book in English, including a total of 82 Chinese characters demonstrated in five parts, namely “Nature”, “Animals”, “Human Beings”, “Objects” and “Chinese Style”.
Each character is illustrated with its ancient form in oracle bone or other inscriptions, a well-known ancient painting or a sketch designed by the author herself, and is described using an interesting, beautiful English poem. With a broad horizon, the book connects Chinese characters with ancient Chinese literature and culture, which makes it lively and worth reading. It is suitable for foreigners who want to learn about Chinese characters, literature and culture, especially for those who consider Chinese abstruse.

本书为英文版图书,全书共选取82个汉字,按照“Nature(自然)”“Animals(动物)”“Human beings(人)”“Objects(物)”“Chinese style(特殊字体)”5个部分予以展示。
用甲骨文等古字形、知名古代图画或作者设计的示意图给每个汉字配图,用优美的、诗歌化的语言为每个汉字给出一段有意思的英文诗歌进行描述,从汉字出发,发散思维,融合中国古代文学和文化,形象生动,非常具有可读性。本书特别适合那些想要了解中国的汉字、文学和文化的外国朋友,尤其是那些将汉语视为“天书”的人。
