City Reading is a poster collection expressing ideas of reading and urbanism. Inspired by the Chinese proverb “Walk ten thousand miles, read ten thousand books”, the cover conveys the inseparable relationship between reading and life’s journey. The design starts off with a simplistic hardcover and a subtle color palette. The lower-left corner uses die cutting to fit in a miniature that contains the same but minified set of posters. A book is not only for reading but also for appreciating. The miniature takes our understanding of books to new heights, reminding readers of the intimate relationship between book and men.
