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.
