The Mid-Autumn Festival has been traditionally celebrated in the Chinese and East-Asian societies for nearly two millennia. This unique collector's journal is laser-etched with one of the most celebrated mid-autumn themed poem composed by Su Shi ( 苏轼 ), a hugely talented Song Dynasty poet who wrote it in remembrance of his sibling and family in a far away county. Written in AD 1076 mid-autumn festival, this Song-styled poem has become the pinnacle of creative expression steeped in hyperboles and allegorical imageries in the Chinese culture.
