Colour printing on xuan (bamboo paper), hand embossing, woodblock printing and xian zhuang (stitched binding) are all ancient techniques used by JAPL. Items of particular interest produced include the recreation of 500 year old books originally made by Emperor Yongle to record the Ming Dynasty, as well as key Confucius teachings. The books and scriptures, amongst other collections and art works, all displaying the time consuming and intricate skills, can be found in the vast on-site product exhibition room.
Description: A wuxia novel by Jin Yong (Louis Cha). The novel's title has been a challenge for translators for years. An alternative English title is Eight Books of the Heavenly Dragon. The major characters are based on eight races of demi-gods and semi-devils described in Buddhist cosmology. In Buddhism, these demi-gods and semi-devils are markedly different from the human race but are still bound to Saṃsāra by their own desires. Jin originally modelled each major character after one of the races but, as he continued writing, the complexity of the story made it impossible for such a simplistic mapping.
