the greatest stories ever told

The Greatest Stories Ever Told is an ongoing project about publishing and translation. Each book is based on the English original (2015), a collection of 22 stories written in style of fable, nursery rhyme and poetry by the artist Ho Tam. The stories, ranging from melodrama to political satire, are supplemented by collages of images from international banknotes.


The project has since been translated into 13 different languages, with each version uniquely re-designed.


A box set has just been released containing all

14 books in 14 languages for collection. Please contact

Note: Along with each language version ordered, a complimentary brochure of the original English text is provided.
