Discipline: Communication

Discipline: Communication

Composed by words of sadness and transforming the poetry of Agnes Lam into design, this book uses the two Chinese characters “poetry” and “thinking” and hopes to bring out the conception of the poems using these words’ image. A black string through the Chinese character “thinking” symbolises a bridge between the reader and the author to cross into the profound nature of things. The black string represents the sad feeling connecting the important lines of each poem. Space is left on each page for the readers to write down their thoughts and feelings regarding the poems.
