No. 70 of 274 copies. Woodblock-printed edition. One vol., thread-bound. Cloth case. Gift of Xia Wei and Soren Edgren.
The book is a limited edition of Da Feng, a previously unpublished short story by the Nobel laureate Mo Yan. It features unusual illustrations; printed in red, the woodcuts are based on original handmade papercuts. The book was produced and published by Zhuyu Shanfang studio, the xylographic workshop of the late Jiang Xun—a talented poet and painter, book collector, bookshop owner, and award-winning book designer, who unexpectedly died in 2022, but whose work is remembered.
