Le Petit Prince has grown up with every one of us around the globe. The classic novella Le Petit Prince is by far the most read and most translated literary masterpiece in French literature. To commemorate the seventy-fifth anniversary of its first publication, Medialink Group Limited, the Hong Kong licensee, and renowned Hong Kong illustrator Steven Choi have joined forces to create the brand new Le Petit Prince Picture Book series. Highly acclaimed by Le Petit Prince’s French licensee, Choi has made history by becoming the first Hongkonger to be officially authorised to illustrate Le Petit Prince Picture Book.
Steven has felt compelled to draw since childhood and has remained passionate about exploring different illustration styles throughout his career. In contrast to the original edition of Le Petit Prince, the author and illustrator has rendered this new edition with his uniquely refined paintbrush strokes, bringing readers along on a realistic yet profound journey.
In celebration of Le Petit Prince’s seventy-fifth French edition publishing anniversary, “Le Petit Prince—Le Havre” Solo Exhibition by Steven Choi opens on 29 January 2021 at Gallery by the Harbour in Harbour City. Exclusively made for this exhibition, Choi has created new chapters to the book, reinterpreting the love story between Le Petit Prince and the rose in a modern fashion. Not only does he weave brand new elements into the classic tale, but he also holds a conversation beyond time and space.
Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your “local eyes”—and for that, you need two i’s.
