Chinatown by William Low

Henry Holt and Company

Meet the Author

Chinatown is the first book William Low has both written and illustrated. As a child, he loved a painting he saw on the cover of a phone book. It showed some shops on a city street. Today, William Low paints his own scenes of city life. He also paints people, landscapes, and objects. He works in a dark basement studio, but his pictures are filled with light.
