An English-Chinese bilingual alternative city guide

This book is a collection of writings, illustrations and photographs that explore the relationships between humans and nature. Drawing from richly diverse perspectives of humanities, social studies, architecture, environmental history and ecology, its contributors include both academics and artists, including the first director of the Hong Kong Maritime Museum and maritime historian Stephen Davies, Fotanian artists Ho Sin Tung, Swing Lam and South Ho, and Fleurs des Lettres editor and author Wong Yi among others. Their works are catalogued together in a hand-drawn, full-spread fold-out map, inviting the reader to join the book’s writers and creators for a walk into Mid-Levels West together.
