Bound with naked-spine book binding and limited to just four colors, the various chapters and modules in “In Search of New Orientalism & Aesthetics” are separated by different qualities of paper. The chapter titles come from a study by Chinese cinema expert Timmy Yip of a non-identified character from the Qing Dynasty.
