Translation Series

Greatest Stories - Translation Series is a project about translation. Based on the original English book The Greatest Stories Ever Told (Hotam#10, 2015), it is being translated into international languages, under the collaboration with many translators. Each language version is uniquely designed and reinvented with a very different look and format. Currently it is available in French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Filipino (and upcoming in Arabic, Chinese and German).

 

Greatest Stories is a collection of fables, fairy tales and urban legends, inspired by the collages of images from international banknotes. Humorous and satirical, all writings and artwork are written and created by the neurotic mind of Ho Tam.

 

For all international book, a complimentary English translation is included as a supplement.  All prices include shipping.
