Organized by the folks at art book in China, P_Pal is packed with essays and interviews chronicling the quickly changing landscape of independent publishing in China. The entire book is beautifully designed and includes a full English translation. Highlights include an essay by Yan You of Ningbo-based photobook publisher Jiazazhi, interviews with independent bookstore managers (including Li Yiming of the unparalleled Wooden Bird) and a history of art book publishing in China.
As an exciting bonus, the second volume collects comics from abC's Apple a Day series. Paradise Systems translated some of these comics for First Wave, others are appearing in English for the first time!
