Publisher's Synopsis

Inspired by classic kung fu flicks from the 1980s and 1990s, Hong Kong cult illustrator Rex Koo pays tribute to the heroes from his childhood in I KNOW KUNG FU- an artbook that celebrates the much-loved shows and stars that have made Chinese martial arts into the global pop-culture phenomenon that it is today.

Drawing from four popular kung fu movies - "Once Upon a Time in China III", "Shaolin Soccer", "Kung Fu Hustle", and "The Grandmaster" - Koo brings to life the legendary tales and titbits behind fan-favourite fighting techniques such as the "Golden Shield Iron Vest", "Magic Power of Toad", and "Tai Chi Fist" in his distinct, nuanced style.

Readers can expect over 250 pages of compelling and characterful illustrations depicting featured moves and film stills, before learning more about the actors and producers that have made a mark on local and international kung fu cinema via a special section dedicated to these masters.

This book is available in a vivid red or bright yellow; books are shipped to customers at random.
