China Pictorial

China Pictorial began on July 18, 1950, less than a year after the founding of the People’s Republic of China, and has continued publishing monthly ever since. The magazine has received much attention from Chinese leaders, and Chairman Mao Tse-tung himself wrote the name of the magazine for its masthead in his own calligraphy.
