The Qingdao Publication Group has received 20-thousand orders for a book of photograpy covering the Long March.

"We hope that Chinese books can be sold abroad, high-end cultural works can be available around the world, and can be recognized by the publication industry in other countries."
The annual Beijing International Book Fair is the world's third largest book fair behind only Frankfurt and London.
