介紹 DESCRIPTION //

《招牌》是一本zine,關於香港前數碼時代和/或手寫的招牌。對於出自招牌畫家之手的作品追蹤,我們能看到個體企業的聰明才智,也能看到後殖民期香港快速變化的城市空間。最初開始給這些招牌牌照,是出於對招牌內容其書法及字體效果的欣賞。即使是為一碗粥做廣告,這些招牌藝術家也,不遺餘力地裝飾美化,其作品被稱之為一場視覺盛宴也不為過。《招牌》是對行人投出的注視的致敬,是對香港隨處可見的文本其意味的探討。本書第一版由小調出版社印刷。第二版由墨恰恰印刷。

Signs is a zine about pre-digital and/or handwritten signage in Hong Kong. The traces of sign painters hands speak to the ingenuity of independent businesses, as well as Hong Kong’s shifting urban space post-colonisation. I started taking photos of signs as a way of appreciating the calligraphic and typographic impact of the texts being written. Even if just for advertising congee, these sign artists spare no effort in flourishes, or I daresay visual melodrama. Signs is a homage to the pedestrians gaze, or what it means to consider Hong Kong through endless encounters of text on a street level. First edition printed at Small Tune Press. Second edition printed at Inkchacha.
