300 Tang Poems - Volumes 1 & 2 In Small Standard Script Calligraphy
300 Tang Poems - Volumes 1 & 2 In Small Standard Script Calligraphy. This book represents the culmination of Dr Daniel Lau's pursuit of Chinese calligraphy. Adopting the traditional format of horizontal handscrolls, the original 18-metre long work that forms the basis of the book presents an intriguing synergy between Lau's exacting transcriptions of Tang-era poems in small character standard script, and complementary self-inscriptions in big-character seal script. Characterised by a strong sense of pliancy in handling the brush, Lau's work emphasizes the rhythm of the 'lifting' and 'pressing' of the brush tip and the contrast between light and heavy strokes. The results are enchanting, tinged with expressive touches and rich tonal variations.
