About This Book

Sunset Survivors tells the stories of Hong Kong's traditional tradesmen and women through stunning imagery and candid interviews. Covering a myriad of curious professions that are quickly falling into obscurity, from fortune telling to face threading and letter writing to bird cage making, readers soon find themselves immersed in the streets of old Hong Kong. Filled with interviews, photographs and little-known facts about the city's twilight industries, Sunset Survivors is a tribute to those who keep the flame burning in a city besieged by foreign imports and stiff competition. Survivors is more than just a travel or coffee-table book; it is a tribute to the city's character, a celebration of its roots and a guide to its evolution. Survivors is a vital piece of history.
