China has a vast territory and a large population. Customs vary in different places because of differing histories, cultures and natural environments. Folk Customs of China is an illustrated album introducing the customs of the Han nationality. It describes the life of the Han nationality, including cuisine, costume, architecture and transportation, etiquette and customs, traditional dances, theatre and folk art. Contains more than 300 photographs which were collected by photographers and writers who visited many provinces and more than 100 counties and towns. The text tells about the origins and development of some customs, and the album is prefaced by well-known Chinese folklorist Zhong Jingwen.
