In a host of bite-sized entries, he answers the key questions: How do you make - and cook with - cannabutter? What is the etymology of the word ""bong""? And how much does the USA spend on prosecuting marijuana-law offenders every year? The answers to all are inside, along with a host of lists, tips, anecdotes, trivia, and recipes.

It includes biographies, tips, trivia, etymologies, recipes, advice on preparation and use. The jacket is printed on a hemp-based stock - the book is cannabis through and through.

Автор: Paul Bevan Название: A Modern Miscellany: Shanghai Cartoon Artists, Shao Xunmei?€™s Circle and the Travels of Jack Chen, 1926-1938 ISBN: 9004307931 ISBN-13(EAN): 9789004307933 Издательство: Brill Цена: 110740 T Наличие на складе: Нет в наличии. Описание: In A Modern Miscellany: Shanghai Cartoon Artists, Shao Xunmei’s Circle and the Travels of Jack Chen, 1926-1938 Paul Bevan explores how the cartoon (manhua) emerged from its place in the Chinese modern art world to become a propaganda tool in the hands of left-wing artists. The artists involved in what was largely a transcultural phenomenon were an eclectic group working in the areas of fashion and commercial art and design. The book demonstrates that during the build up to all-out war the cartoon was not only important in the sphere of Shanghai popular culture in the eyes of the publishers and readers of pictorial magazines but that it occupied a central place in the primary discourse of Chinese modern art history.
