It is one publication that seal cutting and painting calligraphers and collectors must have.

QIAN JUNTAO (1906-1998) was born in Tongxiang, Zhejiang Province, China. He was interested in art since his youth and became artistic editor of Kaiming Bookstore in Shanghai at the age of 20. He was dexterous in book binding and cover design. During this tenure in Kaiming he did the cover designs of a number of books by influential writers such as Lu Xun, Mao Dun and Guo Moruo. His interests in calligraphy are wide, and with his ability to absorb the advantages of many master calligraphers, he is competent in many calligraphic forms. His calligraphy work shows the vivid brush movements and a unique presentation style. As for seal carving, he likes to produce large seals with long inscriptions, especially using his own poems or articles as sidebars for his paintings. He made twenty thousand seals in his whole life. He is also excellent in Chinese brush painting, especially in the flower theme. His works were shown in national and international exhibitions and art journals. He published Collection of Works by Qian Juntao, Seal Designs of Lu Xun, Seal Designs for Lu Xun's Pen Names, Archive of Seal Designs by Qian Juntao, and The Origins of Chinese Seals and Chops (co-authored with Ye Luyuan).

Qian Juntao is a prominent arts appraiser, and has a large art collection worthy several hundred millions. In 1985, he contributed more than 4000 precious cultural relics collected by himself to the nation, so the Government of Tongxiang built Juntao Art House to treasure up these works, also to exhibit other art works, which also serve as a workshop of artists. In 1996, Qian Juntao contributed 1000 valuable historic relics and his works of art to Haining City, and the Haining Government built Qian Juntao Art Institute.
