Standard Meridian Points of Acupuncture: Charts
Prepared by the Institute of Acupuncture and Moxibustion of the China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Published by Foreign Languages Press, 2003
ISBN 7119014439

One 44 page booklet and three full-size charts (700 x 1,000 mm or 27.15 inch x 39.15 inch)
Chart 1 - Names and locations of meridians and acupoints on the front of the human body
Chart 2 - Names and locations of meridians and acupoints on the back of the human body
Chart 3 - Names and locations of meridians and acupoints on the lateral sides of the human body

This set of charts, the first of its kind in standard form to be made in China, has been prepared by the Institute of Acupuncture and Moxibustion of the China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine under the supervision of the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine on the basis of the State Standard of the People's Republic of China for the Location of Acupoints.
This set of charts presents a thorough and accurate location of the points of the 14 meridians and a part of the extra points. The charts respectively show names and locations of meridians and acupoints on the front, back and lateral sides of the human body, along with the international standard nomenclature and alphanumeric code. The booklet accompanying the charts describes in detail names and locations of 409 points (361 meridian points and 48 extra points) to facilitate the use of the charts. The acupuncture nomenclature in this state standard is based on the Standard Acupuncture Nomenclature appraised and approved by the WHO Scientific Working Group to Adopt a Standard International Acupuncture Nomenclature.
This set of charts published for the purpose of helping with implementing the Standard and facilitating clinical practice, teaching and research.

If you are looking for a detailed description of acupoints and are trained in the US perhaps this is not for you. These are the most affordable posters that one can buy. For others one expects to pay >$60. It illustrates all 14 meridians, and extra points (EX). It nicely lists the names in PinYin with tones so the LACs can pronounce them properly. It also has the Traditional Chinese names. The Int'l Standard Org (ISO) designations (LU,ST,GB etc.) are not printed on the charts. Rather, they are included in the 44 page pamphlet. All in all, this is an excellent pictorial representations of Acupuncture Meridian points available. They can be used as posters or framed in the office as conversational center piece.
