Full Description
A Little Bit of Beijing is an architectural graphic novel focused on contemporary Beijing and contains three volumes: Sanlitun, 798 Art District and Nanluoguxiang. It can be best described as a record of a moment in time in the lives of the three areas. The life of each area is documented through the use of architectural-style drawings featuring cut away rooftops, comic book stylized drawings that explore the details inside the buildings, and stories showcasing how people live, work, and visit these spaces. It was awarded the title of 'the most beautiful book of China'. Also available: A Little Bit of Beijing: Nanluoguxiang ISBN 9787560873398 A Little Bit of Beijing: Sanlitun ISBN 9787560873404
