As one of Beijing’s most famous cultural streets, the Liulichang West Street originated in the Qing Dynasty. At that time, most of the people who came to Beijing to take the imperial examinations lived in this area. Therefore, there used to be many stores selling ink brush, inkstick, paper and inkstone, namely the Four Treasures of the Study, in this street. Liulichang had gradually developed into the largest book market in Beijing, as well as a famous cultural market.
