This catalogue is the first of three volumes on Chinese painter Li Yanshan. The series aims to pay tribute to his artistic work and bring it back to the contemporary art stage. The publication approaches his life through his poems, calligraphies and paintings, and thus sets a path for readers to appreciate this artist and his work. Its unobtrusive layout with plenty of white space gives the compiled objects a suitable framework to reveal their charm and impact. The cover boasts a vivid yellow colour, giving the catalogue a powerful appearance.
