This collection of poetry by Qu Yuan, the great Chinese poet, was designed in a more accessible paperback format instead of the traditional Chinese binding form. The use of blue glistening paper and engravings of waves evoke the death of Qu Yuan, who drowned himself in a river.
What did the judges have to say?
"Beautifully produced and beautifully understated."Billy Kiosoglou, Partner & Designer, Brighten the Corners
"Even though I am not able to read this book (since it is in Chinese), it speaks to me through its design. It’s calm but varied in structure and has a sensual choice of paper."Pascal Brun, Co-Founder & Designer, Haller Brun
