The collection of books is a long-term cultural project started in March 2016. Foshan Media Group and Foshan Daily worked together to set up the Foshan History and Culture Research Center, responsible for the compilation and publication of the collection.

Since the first series was published in 2016, the collection has been published continuously at a rate of 10 volumes per year. So far, it has now published 60 volumes with six series. By 2027, a total of 120 volumes will be compiled and published according to a schedule.

The compilation of the seventh series of the collection has been underway since September this year. The Chinese-English versions for the third series will also be compiled in the near future, and it is expected to be published in the fourth quarter of next year.

With a publication history of six consecutive years, the collection has served as a significant spotlight for Foshan culture and even Lingnan culture. It plays an important and far-reaching role in shaping the city's appearance and enhancing the reputation as well as influence of Foshan as a long-lasting city with profound Lingnan culture.
