From the Google blurb: "In September 1926, Czech painter T.F. Simon embarked on a five month voyage around the world. It was a life-changing experience for the artist, a true voyage of discovery that would inspire his paintings and etchings for years to come. Throughout his journey, he corresponded with his family and friends back home, describing the exotic places, intriguing people, and distant cultures he encountered as he travelled through America, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Ceylon and finally back to Europe. Translated and published for the first time in English, the letters give us insight to his unique perspective as the artist takes us on his journey, wandering the 'Modern Babylon' of New York, braving the politically turbulent streets of Shanghai, and observing the Japanese nation mourn the death of its Emperor."
