Throughout the Chinese world, charms and decorations made of paper play a central role in popular celebrations and religious ceremonies alike. From joss papers meant to be burned soon after purchase to the most beautiful New Year prints, this book surveys the breadth of Chinese ceremonial paper products, exploring their creation and distribution, their uses, and their character as artefacts of a living folk art.
