Less is More with Superfine Defined
by Margaret Penney | March 6, 2018
As a kid, I had a very tiny dictionary I carried around in my back pocket that was one of my most favorite things. There’s just something really nifty and precious about objects made smaller that should be larger. The Superfine Defined miniature art book is one such object.
The book is a very small publication created for Tai Tak Takeo Fine Paper to feature Mohawk Superfine printing paper. It has all the other fine print accoutrements also like embossed titles, printed paper edges, and a black hardcover.
Superfine Defined is more than a conversation piece too. It’s designed and conceived by Creative Director Toby Ng around the concept of super fine as in most refined or top quality. The book includes new Hong Kong artists from a variety of creative disciplines sharing their insights on what it means to create work that is the finest.
Artists and designers who get the book can use it as a source of instant encouragement and inspiration; and at the same time they can also learn about and promote the thriving creative scene in Hong Kong.
