Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Guide to Capturing a Plum Blossom aims not at technical artistic training but at the training of artistic perception: not how to hold a brush but rather how to really see a plum blossom. First published in A.D. 1238, Guide to Capturing a Plum Blossom may be the world's first printed book of art and literature; it is presented here in a fine bilingual edition. Red Pine's delicate, graceful, and learned translation of the historic Confucian work is the first ever into English.
