SHIPPING NOVEMBER, 2017. Huangshan, also known as The Yellow Mountain, is an exquisite one hundred and sixty-square mile mountain range in Anhui province in eastern China. The range is particularly known for its seventy-two uniquely-shaped granite peaks, the ubiquitous pine trees that literally grow right out of the rock faces, and the ever-changing configurations of flowing clouds as seen from above. Originally named Yishan (Yi Mountain), legend has it that the mountain was renamed after the Yellow Emperor (Huang Di) ascended to heaven there in 747 AD. Huangshan has been, and continues to be, the subject of numerous traditional Chinese paintings and literature, and was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990. Today, it is one of China’s most popular tourist attractions.

In 2007, Michael Kenna made his first pilgrimage to Huangshan, and three years later Nazraeli Press published a monograph of the photographs he made on this and subsequent visits. The first edition of Huangshan sold out quickly, so we are pleased to announce a new, expanded edition of the book published on the tenth anniversary of Kenna’s first visit to the site. Huangshan: The Yellow Mountain includes fourteen new, previously unpublished photographs as well as the original forty-six. This new edition features a special Chinese-style binding, and is limited to 1,000 copies of which only 500 will be sold outside of Asia, where the book is co-published by Monogram Asia. Huangshan: The Yellow Mountain is beautifully printed on Japanese art paper using our exclusive “Daido black” ink.

A special edition of 100 copies, numbered and signed by the artist and presented in a board slipcase, is also available.
