1960s The Collection of Single Characters

Back

Huang Yao compiled the many different ways of writing the same single Chinese character, from pictograph to oracle bone inscriptions and bronze scripts. Below every character, he noted the source in ‘caoshu’. There are a total of 74 pages.

In this example there are 3 Chinese characters, the furthest left is ‘ce’, which the ancient form representing, the meaning, ‘book’. The pictorial is a visual description of one of the earliest forms of a book. i.e. strips of bamboo tied together with a piece of string. Huang Yao was likely to have started this process in the 1960's.
