Entry Description

An extraordinary publication which took six years is truly the largest gallery’s catalogue ever, weighing 26.5 kg. Seeking for overall design theme, we were captured by a Chinese calligraphy with the word PASSION. Hence our design story is: Passion set the family history in the Chinese art world, engraving this character on the enormous box cover, casted their dedication once again. Beige is the iconic colour for Chinese art being the tone of aged paper. Inner lining of the box is a classic red symbolizing arts from the scholars’ studio. Unique oriental ways of binding, unfolding pages of classic handscrolls which are were reproduced as concertina fold out sections, these are design highlights. This publication is for the purpose of its Centennial Celebration but was completed some years afterwards due to the long process of printing and binding which asks for super care.
