The Book Taiwan. Art and Civilisation sheds light on Taiwan’s beautiful scenery as well as its colourful history in the form of a true initiatory trip. Through magnificent illustrations, Taiwan reveals its secret beauty, its fauna and flora intertwined with its unique architecture. Home of the traditional and the modern, the gorgeous island is also the home of a very dynamic artistic scene. One thus fully grasps why the Portuguese named her 'Ilha Formosa', beautiful island.
