Lian Huan Hua 连环画 - Picture Storybook

Lian Huan Hua (连环画) Collection, Asia Collection, Hamilton Library, University of Hawaii at Manoa
Lian Huan Hua 连环画 literally means "linked serial pictures." They are pocket sized picture-story books first published by a Shanghai publisher in the 1920s. The Library has collected more than 150 titles of lian huan hua that were published mostly during the Cultural Revolution, particularly between 1971-1976, when the publication of lian huan hua was rare and difficult at that time.
