Letter from Taipei is a picture book I made while teaching English at National Taipei University of Technology. It traces color and its absence and attempts to document the extraordinary in the ordinary in the streets of Taiwan. Through photos and bilingual text, it is a spiritual inquiry inspired by a city that conceals its beauties in alleyways and small corners.
Though the book commemorates the particularity of the city of Taipei, it is a book for anyone who has ever been lonely in a strange place and anyone who enjoys hunting for beauty in unexpected places.
If you are in the United States, you can use my contact form to order a copy directly from me, find it on the shelves of Eastwind Books in Berkeley (on University between Shattuck and Milvia), or order it from Amazon.
