Almanacco del Mistero 1993

Introduction: There exists an Almanacco that has been around for at least three thousand years and which is almost as mysterious as ours. So where is it published? Oh well, that's obvious: in China, the land of mystery par excellence. To find out more and to learn about thousand of other unusual, enigmatic and curious facts, just plunge into the Almanacco del Mistero 1993, dedicated to China, Japan and all the other ever so mysterious countries of the "yellow continent". There you will meet with tigers and dragons, ninjas and samurai, flying turtles and immortal monks. And for those of you who are never satisfied, there's also a brand-new comic strip story set in the magic universe of the Martial Arts and, as you might expect, the unusual feature articles replete with bits of news from this and other worlds.
