Chineasy: The New Way to Read Chinese is a collaboration between author ShaoLan Hsueh and graphic artist Noma Bar designed to provide a simple way to learn Chinese by combining the characters themselves with illustrations.
There are and have been several Chinese alphabets, that is pre-existing alphabets adapted to write down the Chinese language. However, the standard Chinese writing system uses a non-alphabetic script with an alphabet for supplementary use. There is no original alphabet native to China. Sometimes the term is used anyway to refer to logographic Chinese characters (sinograms). It is more appropriately used, though, for phonemic transcriptions such as pinyin.
