by Tian Wen Lin from the book by Lam Sai Wing
$23.95, Simplified Chinese Characters Only
320 Pages, Softbound. Illustrations.
Here is something unusual. The famous illustrated texts for this major Hung form show beautiful drawings of Master Lam Sai Wing performing each movement. But this edition has something different; just as in the original there are renderings of the original poses, in this "retelling" of that text,
drawings of the opponent have been added to each and every page showing Lam defeating him each time with the appropriate movement from the form. There are even added drawings of the downed opponents huddling in a corner. A kind of unusual idea—obviously a labor of love, even if it doesn't match the quality of the original piece.
In addition to tinted paper, the wrap around cover is a fine textured stiff paper.
