New York. Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Publishers. 1982. First Edition. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine with seldom marks on pages. Jacket Condition: Fine, slight fading on back cover. 200pp. 158 illustrations. (ill. in colour & b/w).

This richly illustrated artist book is a charming chronicle of artist David Hockney and poet Steven Spender's 1981 trip to China. Presented in a diary format, the writing speaks directly to their experience, developing perspective, and daily travails. There are hardly any pages without a Hockney illustration making a watermark behind the print, or photo reproductions of tourist-Spender's pictures. A specific and rather personal publication, it has a lot to say about travel, about the artist's interpretation of place and the text's ability to rename those images in your memory, which always feel so far away. 

158 watercolors, drawings, and photographs, including 58 plates and 1 map.
Photographs by Stephen Spender, Gregory Evans.
Illustrations by David Hockney.
Map Illustration by Hanni Bailey.
