Pleasure of Learning

[Book]

Client

Phoenix Fine Arts Publishing Ltd., Nanjing

Design

Minmin Qu, Nanjing Qian Jiang, Nanjing


The book “Pleasure of Learning” is designed like a bundle of secret documents with folded, ultra-delicate pieces of rice paper on the inside. A soft swathe of felt is wrapped around its body and tied with a thread of raffia. Calligraphic daubs of ink darken the creamy natural white of the paper page by page, aimed at immersing the reader in a new world. The strong, tough paper of this book contains texts in filigree Chinese type, with some smears of watery ink here and there. Implemented as a book that challenges the perception, readers wonder whether these smears are traces of the artists’ work or printing ink that has seeped through.
