About Jiang song

What is a good book?
Depending on the person, it varies widely
Can the text be good? Can it be practical? Can it be fun?
Can you only feel the shape and look beautiful? ...........
Maybe everyone can have a more professional and comprehensive understanding...........

At present, most readers, including many professional publishers and professional publishers, still only know the good book at the level of text content production, and even the text content and form of the book are separated, opposed and excluded. ......

In today's era of e-reading, the experience of five senses of paper books is particularly important...........

But I will think of books as a temperature-producing product, and follow the book design concept of Trinity (editing design, layout design, binding design) to integrate, sublimate content and express meaning in a visual language. Readers provide a good reading experience, which is also a valuable humane care!

About Samoon

Those who have skillfully injected chicken blood into the body to meet the birth of each day, I admire you like reverence for the sun and Caesar. But not everyone is a hero - there is always someone sitting on the side of the road applauding when the hero passes."

——Will Roger

Mur Mur Lab hopes to build a passage through 552 pieces of paper to construct a space where the narrowest point passes.
In the process of passing this passage, in addition to the dialogue with the book, there is also a dialogue with each page of the paper of the book.
The 552 sheets of paper are organized in a metal grid structure and are divided into 24 sections suspended from the main wooden frame structure of the original atrium. The breeze twitched the gap and the page creaked.
Sometimes, people don't need to look up, they just need to take their own path.
Petit is beautiful.
