There are many details to this book—some have to do with design, some have to do with production. My favorite quality of these is how they slowly reveal themselves as the viewer interacts with the book. From the exposed binding and the debossed cover, to the repeating patterns, and the hand-lettering. It all comes together with the story in a cohesive and well-paced story.

Project Description

Warisan Kita (Our Heritage) is a series of ceramic art workshops initiated by Malay Heritage Foundation, where members of the public were invited to create their own expression on ceramic tiles to reflect on their identity and what it means to be a Singaporean. The series of workshops will culminate in the installation of a mural at Malay Heritage Centre. A commemorative book was commissioned to document the workshop processes as well as the experiences of the organizer and participants.

With the background of the project, the cover was designed to reflect the essence and nature of the mural. The tactility and rawness of the ceramic art form is represented via the untreated grey cardboard and exposed spine. The blind debossed motif of the berhias bunga, encircled by a ring representing the community mirrors the imprint made by the participants on the clay tiles. Copper foil stamping of the logo provides a contrasting finishing of the cover.
