"Writings about Jade" is a classic Chinese poetry book translated by one of Brazil’s best known 'concrete' poets (modern poetry that uses visual composition as part of its structure). To portray this unusual relationship, we created a book cover that integrated ancient Chinese books and their main design characteristics with a modern approach. The open bookbinding beautifully showcases the intricate and colourful Chinese drawing on the front page. Visual appeal is further enhanced by the contrasting black and white treatment used on the inside pages.
