This information concerns the original French edition.
This book is one of the rare ones that touches on this theme for the French public. In a concise manner the author presents a maximum of information and facts. He asks the question: what is Chinese Calligraphy? He answers in three parts: the tools that this discipline uses, the history of the different styles accompanied by biographies of the different masters, and finally, the philiosophy underlying Chinese Calligraphy. A multitude of well-chosen illustrations help identify and memorise the different styles, often deep with subtilities, as the Chinese art of writing with a brush has always developed a mixed feeling of fascination and mystery to western eyes.
