Walk Through 1947. 2. 28 Book Cover Design

  • A Pilgrimage for Our Generation

    “Walk Through 1947. 2. 28” is a history book about 228 Incident in Taiwan. The editor group re-documented the interviews with the victim’s families to bring different perspectives to the young generation in Taiwan. For many years, 228 Incident is covered and avoided to being discussed by Taiwan's government. The editor group hopes this book would play an important role in the process of transitional justice in Taiwan’s history.

    The client, Island of Undercurrent, wants to have a cover which is not too historically serious but still has the sense of calmness and steadiness. So I focused on presenting the story of the journey. Using footsteps walking through blind embossing incidence’s addresses to represent to ideas of historic pilgrimage. Also using bilingual design to balance the visual movement on the cover. The books were sold out in 228 Incident Music Festival on 2015. 2. 28.

    《走過:尋訪二二八》是一本有關二二八事件的青年巡禮,編輯群透過重新走訪事件地點以及訪問受害者家屬重新整理出理解二二八事件的另一種角度與剖面。多年來,這段台灣的歷史被掩蓋,甚至被扭曲,編輯群希望這本書能為台灣轉型正義的過程中的一股助力。

    海嶼暗潮與共生音樂節工作小組希望這本書的封面可以讓人覺得親近但卻不失莊嚴。在設計上透過腳印的路徑走過打凸的事件地址,去呈現二二八的歷史巡禮的意涵,沒有間斷的腳印也訴說著這段歷史還不斷的在我們生活中留下他的印記。
