Tian is Chinese for sky. The corresponding Chinese character combines the symbols for horizon and great to form a new symbol: the greatest. Thus Tian symbolizes everything humans cannot influence, anything that is beyond sheer rationalism. Artists often draw their inspiration from a source they cannot describe. Tian Books aspire to take the viewer and reader into this world.
