Book of homemade Jianzhi - traditional Chinese papercut art
Unique homemade Leporello style binding in silk with paper label (with gold flecks) to the front board. Often red papercuts like these are used to decorate special events; for example Chinese New Year. There are twelve pages of glued on papercuts in this concertina style book, each one represents one of the traditional Chinese zodiac animals. We therefore assume that this was made as a New Year gift for someone. At the back there is a stamp saying 'China Longyuan Paper-Cut Club'. The China Longyuan Power Group Corporation Limited is the largest wind power producer in China and Asia. 250 x 170 mm (9¾ x 6¾ inches).
