GBP 170.00
Basically, a photographic homage to the cult of the most famous of Chinese 'bai jiu' spirits, Maotai, which can now command astronomical prices. Shows many bottles of Maotai, with much variety of design, old and new, together with advertising and propaganda material promoting this very strong spirit. Illustrated throughout in colour. A good visual reference on a much-coveted Chinese commodity. Chinese text. Immediately went out-of-print. The edition snapped up, apparently, by Maotai producers and enthusiasts.
