This compendium contains extensive information about traditional Chinese medicine. The design is inspired by the look and feel of antique Chinese packaging and separates the compendium into a day and a night part, visualised with an embossed sun and moon. Alongside health tips, massage techniques, detailed information about acupuncture as well as the Chinese zodiac can be found. The comprehensive medical book was designed for the primary use at home but it comes with a foldable booklet for travels. Several lovingly designed scrolls do not only contain information, but because of their sculptural character serve also as beneficial, soothing decoration.
