Discipline: Communication

My wife and I visited Tainan in 2011 and we passed by an old shop selling traditional Chinese ink brushes. The feeling of primitive simplicity filled the shop and this impressed upon my memory. We were used to write on copybooks when we were young. We usually started with some old simple phrases that we hardly understood. In De Tainan Stijl, the banners appearing in Tainan are recorded. They reflect the culture and living style of the city. I hope this little copybook will help promote the special typographies on the shops’ banners in Tainan and lead to a brand new style of Chinese calligraphy.
