Name: Judit F. B.
Mother tongue: Hungarian
Occupation: retired psychologist
My object: book of poems from the Yunnan province, Lijiang city
My story about it:

During my stay in the city, various objects were being sold in the market. This is where I discovered this book of poems. The structure of the book is different from traditional European book printing. The entire book and all the pages are composed of little bamboo rods that were sewn together.
I liked the Chinese script and the images of the young women. Each woman depicted has different clothing and a different hairstyle. Some of them hold certain objects in their hands, such as a drum or a flowering tree branch. I don’t understand the text, but when I look at it, I see the unique value of youth reflected in this small book.
