An English-Chinese bilingual alternative city guide, The Pulse of Nature — Mid-Levels West
This book is a collection of writings, illustrations and photographs that explore the relationships between humans and nature. Drawing from richly diverse perspectives of humanities, social studies, architecture, environmental history and ecology, its contributors include both academics and artists, including the first director of the Hong Kong Maritime Museum and maritime historian Stephen Davies, Fotanian artists Ho Sin Tung, Swing Lam and South Ho, and Fleurs des Lettres editor and author Wong Yi among others. Their works are catalogued together in a hand-drawn, full-spread fold-out map, inviting the reader to join the book’s writers and creators for a walk into Mid-Levels West together.
Beneath Victoria Peak
Above the urban fringe
Where the mountain meets humans
Artists, novelists, ecologists, historians, architects and urbanists, gather to reveal their personal insights and experiences of this space between city and mountain. A collection of essays, short stories, art, photography, postcards and maps, The Pulse of Nature is the ultimate guide for wandering or roaming around Mid-Levels West. Let us meander then, into a Hong Kong story you may never have known until now.
