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.show more
