Tales of Old Peking
Tales of Old Peking: Inside the Walls of China's Tumultuous Capital | Derek Sandhaus
1 post
"Old Peking was the cultural and political centre of a nation in flux clashing with foreigners knocking on its door. As a city in the epicentre of change, its history is a tumultuous and exciting one that comes alive in this re-telling which brings together a mish-mash of photos, clippings and writings to reveal the stories largely untouched in standard accounts of the Forbidden City."--Back cover.

Yes! I love retracing cities. This lovely series has advertisements, posters, brochures, trivia and history on different cities! I love the format and the many illustrations and pictures inside. Wish I read this before I visited the capital city, but this will surely make my next visit more interesting!
