Massive book to be presented to Truc Lam Zen monastery

A 300-page book, measuring 125cmx80cmx16cm with wooden covers and weighing 120kg, by Prof Dr Hoang Quang Thuan, calligrapher Tran Quoc An and photographer Pham Tu, will soon be completed.

An said the book, entitled “Thi Van Yen Tu,” includes 143 poems by Thuan, which were published by the Vietnam Education Publishing House in 1998.

Those poems were printed on the left pages of the book and they were rewritten in calligraphy on the right pages. Both pages are decorated with yellowish patterns from pictures taken by Tu at Dong Pagoda on the Yen Tu peak.

It will then be presented to the Truc Lam Zen Monastery in the northern province of Quang Ninh on January 12.

Earlier, the three authors set a Vietnamese record with their 54kg calligraphic book “Hoa Lu Thi Tap,” which was a gift to the Hanoi Municipal People’s Committee to mark the 1000th anniversary of the capital city.
