Introductions to books

This book presents the stories of the 25 treasures in the second season of the documentary. Between the lines, you may find their legendary experiences that were hardly known and look for traces of the Chinese spirit. We are sure that these stories, which are full of ups and downs, will open a window for readers to gain a touch of the everlasting value and charm of the great country’s gems. Thanks to the humanistic elements and knowledge, this artfully designed book is also an ideal choice for readers, especially fans of history and cultural relics, to dig deeper about the legend, history and Chinese culture after they turn off their electronic devices because it offers abundant content about how these treasures could possibly have been made, as well as traditional culture, and differences between China and the rest of the world.
