Those with black backgrounds particularly represent the unique style of the art. Combining the unconstrained, magnificent style of North China's New Year pictures and the exquisiteness and grace of the southern New Year pictures, Zhangzhou New Year Woodprints used to sell well in Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Taiwan, and produced an influence upon the evlolvenment of Taiwan's New Year pictures.
