Made in China is a fun-filled, action-packed journey into the heart of Chinese pop culture. For Asia-philes, designers, and pop culture junkies, designer Reed Darmon has collected the most colorful (and in some cases, the kookiest) Chinese ephemera in this chunky paperback. Candy wrappers, firecrackers, Chairman Mao heads, and more! These objects are a testament to the age-old Chinese fascination with vivid hues and whimsical figures. Even humdrum, everyday items such as matchbooks and sock labels are decorated with exuberant illustration. A stylishly designed object and graphic essay in one, Made in China is a kaleidoscope of playful graphics and vibrant design, from the post-revolution '50s through today.

Review:
'A wonderful book of pictures of rare and fascinating items made in China, Hong Kong, and Macau, from the early 1900s through the 1980s. It is miraculous in itself that these items survived at all, having made it through the ravages of time, and the destructive years of the Cultural Revolution. Through Darmon's dilligence, dedication to the interesting, and good eye, we are treated to an intimate glimpse into the world of Chinese ephemera, that would never have otherwise been possible. Darmon includes informative notes about the items.' - Amazon review
