Alex Nabaum: The Evolution of China?

Alex Nabaum’s uncommissioned illustration, “The Evolution of China,” was selected for inclusion in last year’s 54th Annual of American Illustration from the Society of Illustrators.  The book was printed in China and when it arrived on American shores, the page that was to contain Alex’s image was blank: Chinese government censors deemed the image to be “disrespectful to Mao Zedong.”
