Philip Z. Trupp (P. Zbar) (au & il). Here Trupp tells the story of Chu Shui Hu, whose writing brush allows him to become a master of art in ancient China, & gives him the selfless joy of finding simplicity & “emptiness of art,” the highest reward of self-cultivation that a Taoist scholar can pursue, especially during the Tang Dynasty, Hu’s period. This is the story of the poor little boy who only had lightning bugs for reading at night but educates himself to be a great strategist; a famous calligrapher who darkens a whole pond by washing his brush while practicing his skills for years in the mountains. Each page of this fable is illustrated by a Chinese word beautifully written in calligraphy by Trupp, with an explanation of the character’s meaning. Beautifully designed!
