【PMQ設計講座】書的設計語言

【PMQ設計講座】書的設計語言

關於閱讀,我們不免會想到文字內容,但書本總是以各種「語言」與讀者溝通,內文以外,還有封面、字體、排版、裝訂、材質、印刷及加工等,對話在翻頁前已經開始。所有細節的總和,就是一場完整的閱讀體驗。是次講座邀請到陳曦成(曦成)及麥綮桁(Mak)兩名書籍設計師就「書的設計語言」進行分享及對談:

曦成將從「書的身體」,如結構、材質及排版等說起;Mak則會談及文字設計、排版、文庫本及活字印刷,以及其書籍與字型創作經歷。既然主題是紙本書,當然必須捧在手上,感受閱讀的質感。兩位設計師將帶同個人收藏出席分享,我們誠意邀請所有參與者也帶上你們喜歡的書籍設計到場一起交流,期待看到各式各樣、充滿驚喜的作品。

Design Talk – The Way a Book Speaks

When we talk about reading, we will inevitably think of the text. In fact, books communicate with readers in different “languages”, be it cover, type, layout, binding, materials, printing… The dialogue begins before we open the book.

Every detail counts towards a holistic reading experience. In this talk, two book designers Chan Heishing and Mak Kai-hang will share insights on “The Way a Book Speaks”:
Hei Shing will talk about “the body of the book” in terms of structure, materials and layout; Mak will speak about typography, layout, bunkobon (pocket-sized paperbacks in Japan), letterpress printing, and also his works.

As we are talking about paper books, of course we have to hold them in our hands to feel them. The two designers will bring their collection of books to the event. We hope you will join us and bring along yours so that we can enjoy a variety of book designs from each other.

書就是… A Book is…


一片紙不但表現時間,也表現空間。而一片片的紙張組合起來的書就是一個高深的容器,盛滿文字,既能從中不斷汲取智慧,又能裝入無限的智慧。

A piece of paper reflects not only time but also space. Books are formed by binding papers together to become containers of words that serve as a reservoir as well as a spring of wisdom.
