Product description

A collection of 100 gorgeous full-color postcards featuring delightful Chineasy pictograms--the revolutionary visual method that makes learning to read and write Chinese simple and fun.ShaoLan Hsueh used her entrepreneurial and cultural background to create Chineasy--a groundbreaking system for quickly learning the basic building blocks of written Chinese, which is considered one of the most difficult languages to master. Working with renowned illustrator Noma Bar, she "unpicked" Chinese characters, turning them into pictograms that are engaging, delightful, and easy to remember.This charming companion to Chineasy--the acclaimed book that made her graphic educational system available to everyone--contains dozens of postcards, each featuring one large Chinese character in pictogram on the front. The back includes the original "unpicked" Chinese character, its English translation, and a concise description. The pictogram is also repeated in miniature in the postage area.With Chineasy Postcards, anyone can express a sentiment in Chinese--and share this groundbreaking learning system--one character at a time.
