WHAT ARE QINPU?
DIFFERENT TYPES OF QINPU
There are several different types of qinpu one can obtain: original editions, photographic reprint, lithographic facsimiles and modern reset editions.
ORIGINAL EDITIONS are qinpu printed at the original time of publication, or re-issues during the past. These are mostly kept in libraries and private collections. Since they are original, they tend to be fragile.
PHOTOGRAPHIC REPRINTS is basically a scan of the original qinpu and reduced size reprint in modern binding. The most famous is the Qinqu Jicheng.
LITHOGRAPHIC FACSIMILES are becoming more popular. The original qinpu is scanned, then it is lithographically printed on xuan paper. They are bound in traditional Chinese book binding method.
MODERN RESET EDITIONS appeared after 2005. These have modern typographic elements and are often reset using more recent editions or handcopies of original qinpu.
