Every page of this book is filled with secret code. It seems like Chinese calligraphy, but it's not. It seems like you can't read it, but you can. Once the pieces of the puzzle start falling into piece, you will understand it all. Twelve traditional American songs and five classic songs from Chinese culture are written here in Xu Bing's unique "square word calligraphy," which uses one block words made of English letters. From a distance, these pieces are beautiful but unintelligible art. Up close, they are a mystery just waiting to be solved- like a fine art version of "Magic Eye."
