Dao De Jing


This is a coloring book for all ages, children, teenagers, adults or seniors. It is the first of its kind where the ancient classic Dao De Jing is reproduced in Modern Chinese Calligraphy, using traditional Chinese brushes and ink written on rice paper. On the left pages are the most common texts reproduced in Fang Song typeface, with calligraphy artwork on the right. These pages allow for quick references. Dao De Jing is the most translated text written around 500 B.C. by the author commonly know as Lao Zi. It forms the philosophical text of Chinese thoughts apart from Confucianism.
