p > Chen Huaqiong, the author of Gu Embroidery’s “Communist Manifesto”, told a reporter from Chinanews.com, “This work is half-painted and half-embroidered. Both the text and the five-pointed star are embroidered, and the thinnest part uses 1/64 silk threads. Again. Because this book has a sense of history and age, color lead is used to express the rustic and old feeling.”
