China is the hometown of the shadow play. The Chinese leather shadow play is an ancient and widespread form of folk opera art. Over the past thousand years, folk artists have been casting leather puppets' shadows on a small white curtain while singing and dancing behind it, depicting the ups and downs of the life of the Chinese people.

This book has selected over 300 exquisite leather shadow-play puppets from a large number of collections, classifying them according to region and genre. Along with explaining the related terminology of the shadow play, the book also gives readers a complete appreciation of this ancient yet still impressive art form.
