    Tao De Ching by Sean Michael Wilson and Cary Kwok is a word and graphic commentary to Lao Tzu s Chinese philosophy classic.WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THE WORKI love Tao de Ching and it is refreshing to see it being interpreted in a different medium Though William Scott Wilson s translation isn t my favourite, the authors did their best to bring out the meaning most personal to them, which is one of the cores of Taoist teachings.DISLIKESI could not comprehend the meaning behind a few of the drawings How Tao De Ching by Sean Michael Wilson and Cary Kwok is a word and graphic commentary to Lao Tzu s Chinese philosophy classic.WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THE WORKI love Tao de Ching and it is refreshing to see it being interpreted in a different medium Though William Scott Wilson s translation isn t my favourite, the authors did their best to bring out the meaning most personal to them, which is one of the cores of Taoist teachings.DISLIKESI could not comprehend the meaning behind a few of the drawings However, most were easy enough to understand.WHO IS IT FORPeople familiar with Tao de Ching would want to dip into this Newcomers should find it suitable for comprehension and enjoyment.Many thanks to Shambhala Publications for review copy

    This is such a beautifully crafted book The Tao Te Ching is notoriously difficult to translate, and I appreciated the thoughtful notes that bracket the main text, which give context for what went into the textual as well as visual translations The artistic direction is not only powerful but coherent across the whole book, with consistency of form and style on every page I originally picked up a digital copy through Netgalley, but I ended up purchasing a copy for a friend of mine who loves bot This is such a beautifully crafted book The Tao Te Ching is notoriously difficult to translate, and I appreciated the thoughtful notes that bracket the main text, which give context for what went into the textual as well as visual translations The artistic direction is not only powerful but coherent across the whole book, with consistency of form and style on every page I originally picked up a digital copy through Netgalley, but I ended up purchasing a copy for a friend of mine who loves both graphic novels and nuanced takes on Taoism She in turn loved it so much that she ended up ordering several other of Sean Michael Wilson s graphic novel translations

    The Tao Te Ching has long been one of my favorite books.the simplicity and depth I have to say this was not my favorite translation of the book While the graphic portion was interesting and nicely done, I felt it highly complexified and made too busy what is in reality a beautifully simple, yet powerful book To me, the portrayal of the modern slant was not always that well done, and I will return to the initial beautifully illustrated one that I read back when I was 18 and still have

    This is a pretty unappealing translation, but the illustrated accompaniments do add something to a text that is pretty much impossible to illustrate
