As the title of the book implies, it consists
of a plethora of all-over advertisements on both Hong Kong and Singapore
buses over the period 2005-2006.
It is divided into 13 chapters, each featuring
a different advertising topic. Examples are 'Food & Dining', 'Beauty
& Health' and 'Finance'. No captions are included, as the Author would
prefer the Reader to 'feel the photos by themselves, rather than guiding
the readers by captions.'
The book tends to favour adverts from Singapore
more so than from Hong Kong. I would prefer captions, as although many
of the adverts are self-explanatory, some are not! Each page has
the topic along the edge of of the left-hand page in English, and in Chinese

Overall an interesting book with plenty of
