Stephen Spender and David Hockney’s illustrated diary of the trip they took together to China takes in not just the famous sites – the Great Wall, the Temple of the jade Buddha, the magical landscape of Kweilin but the unexpected incidents of everyday Chinese life. And both discuss their meetings with contemporary Chinese poets and painters. Hockney’s photographs, drawings and watercolours are a unique revelation of China, while Spender discourses in rich prose. Together they provide a glimpse of this ever-mysterious land.  First paperback edition.  No inscriptions, annotations or underlining.  Binding strong and tight.
