Publisher's Description

A Box collects memories and secrets from ordinary Chinese families, including a book of selected album photos, private letters, stories, and a secret draw which includes several objects, one aluminum toy plane, one red scarf for Chinese young pioneer’s league, one classic tin ring, four crystal beads, one vintage train ticket, one vintage cinema ticket, etc.

It has been chosen by Martin Parr as the best photo book of the past year:

'This exquisite box contains an album of photos that this couple have located and have written up the with stories and secrets associated with images. Beautifully reproduced with many images and much ephemera tipped in. There are booklets with French and English translations. At the bottom of the box is a secret drawer that includes everything from a metal toy plane to a vintage train ticket.” - Martin Parr
