Chuanqi ( Short Stories from Tang Dynasty)

  • Chuanqi  (传奇)  is a form of traditional Chinese literature, consisting of short stories with mystical, fantastical or legendary elements. It was developed and flourished during Tang Dynasty (early 7th to early 10th century) , so they were also translated as “classical tales of Tang Dynasty”.

    This illustration series is for my second semester thesis. Each of them is based on a short story from Chuanqi.
