Entry Description: Recollection is a special issue featuring the achievements of Taiwan e-Learning and Digital Archives Program conducted by the Institute of History and Philology of Academia Sinica, Taiwan. The whole design project consists of a publication along with a jacket poster and a manga booklet. The imagery of embossed annual ring on both front and back cover not only symbolizes the accomplished achievements in the past ten years, but responds to the title that every project and research in the book are memorable parts of the whole program. Except for the book's traditional Chinese content, the jacket poster shows the program's concise achievements in English. To visually enhance the diversity of the research projects, tracing paper was used as printing material to give the poster various looks when placed on different background.
