The book includes various areas in Beijing, in He Bei Province- Guilin and Yangshuo in Guangxi Province- and Tongli, Tai Hu Lake and Wuxi in Jiangsu Province. This coffee table series of books was born out of my love for photography and interest in architecture to capture this pictorial journey of doors, windows, temples, and gateways of fascinating and colorful cities. Represented here are architectural flavors of the past to those of modern China: classical gardens- famous pagodas- Buddha temples- Beijings glorious Summer Palace- the mysterious Forbidden City- historical Tiannamen Square- the UNESCO ancient wonder of the world The Great Wall- a mini lost Shangri-la- the magical mountains of Guilin and Yangshuo- the scenic spots of Taihu Lake- and the almost unheard of Sex Museum in Tongli. China Book 3 will follow in 2009 and will showcase the cities and surrounding areas of Shanghai, Tibet, Xian, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. The continuing series will include the United Kingdom, Europe, Asia, SE Asia, The Middle East, Oceana, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. Enjoy the journey and Bon voyage
