The Gentle Mist


Book Design, 2015


Mist is wet, fuzzy and without certain boundary, which is like the damp memory buried deep in one’s heart. In this book, I make mist the form and carrier of memory and try to discuss the disappearance and preservation of memory. The words and images in the book came from my documentation from 2008 to 2015. There are four chapters in the book: The One in the Mist, Daily Mist, Scenes in Summer and Words in Mist.

To express the feeling of elapsing, I only took the color of white, grey and black. Based on the theme and content, I chose four kinds of paper with different materials to build the collision and designed some special page to represent our redesign of memory. Finally, I used bareback bonding to maintain the natural temperament of the whole book.






雾是潮湿的、模糊的、没有确定边界的,就像是每个人内心深处久远的、潮湿的回忆。在这本书中,我将雾当作记忆的外化形式和载体,试图探讨记忆的消失和保存。书中的文字和图片均来自于我2008到2015当中七年的记录,共分为四个章节:雾中的人,雾的日常,夏日映画和雾中的字。

为了表现时间的逝去感,在书的色彩上我只用了黑、白、灰。根据书的内容,我选择了四种不同的纸,营造不同材质间的碰撞。书的第四章,为了表达人对记忆文字进行的再创造,我增加了一些特殊页的设计,在打印后手工制作而成。装订方法上,用了裸背穿线装,试图保留整个书自然的气质。
