A Collector's Guide
Ho Wing Meng
New. This book claims to be the first of its kind in that not much was written about the subject before the author, an untiring expert on all things Straits Chinese, decided to share his knowledge with us. As with the other books that Ho has produced there's lots here to spark new interest plus a beautiful collection of colour photographs.
