Chinese + English = Chinglish

By Kevin

I apologize in advance for the shameless plug, but I just published a book titled "Chinese + English = Chinglish." You should check it out.

A couple years ago, a couple of Chinglish sign photos that I took were included in a book called "Found in Translation," which has gone on to sell more than 50,000 copies. While I thought the book was pretty good, I also thought to myself, "I can do better than that."

So this 80-page book contains more than 100 of the best depictions of Chinglish that I've managed to photograph in our three years in China. Most are prominent public signs and advertisements, but many others are packaging and clothing.

So far it's only available through online publisher, but if anyone other than just family and friends show an interest, maybe wider distribution might be possible. Shipping is a bit pricy, but I discovered that if you enter this promo code: "hpfreeshipping" (without quotation marks, naturally) at checkout, shipping is free up to $10.

Oh yeah, I also made another blog about the book and Chinglish, which you are more than welcome to visit: here.
