Hello, I found this old calligraphy chinese folding book. Can any of you fine people here possibly translate these few pages so that I can get some idea of what its talking about.

Thank you kindly.

If you can repost your photo at a much higher quality, so that I can zoom into the characters and see them clearly, I will see what I can do for you.

I am presently having a look at your other post and will comment there for you also.

Thanks again for the reply.   Attached are the higher resolution pictures.


Not close enough I'm afraid.  Try zooming in the photo so that each panel fills the photo frame on its own.  The purpose for these photos is to identify the hand written characters.  The best chance of accomplishing that, is with the closest, clearest, photos possible.

I will do my best for you, though I am not fluent in the written text, and do struggle most with the hand written calligraphic styles

I studied Hebrew for a little while and found the same thing.  The handwritten letters are much different. Plus they use all "capital" letters with/without calligraphic styles for some things, as well.  Probably, similar to trying to read English cursive if you were not taught cursive but only print.  

Sorry for the delay and resubmitting. Below is the front cover of the book and 2 of the panels. Hope they help.


Translates as 'Korean custom painting'

Use the above characters to google search and click the translate button, you will find many examples and prices of items like yours.

I will definitely give it a try. Thanks for your help.
