Book Cover

Classic of Mountains and Seas

Back

Classic of Mountains and Seas is a report on the explorer and photo journalist Wong How Man, who was the founder of the China Exploration and Research Society. The design of the cover and wrapper creatively illustrates the journey through the adventures he experienced over the past 30 years. The idea behind it is to transform the complexity of his adventures and visualise the starting point, the destination and the travel routes with simple dots, lines and surfaces as well as with calligraphic elements. Combining typography with block printing technology, the design represents the idea that every adventure is a work of art.
