【FRONTLINE Z.A.】- Bookbinding
【FRONTLINE Z.A.】- On Print

In this book, each comic has it's own colours, so we have to prepare total more than 10 colours. And each artist has their own styles and own paper, so we must pass a lot of time to making print test.

The print work of mandarin version start from march until now, which is really a hard work, we hope the reader will really enjoy it !

【FRONTLINE Z.A.】- Papers

We want to choose different paper to present the character of each author and their stories. It's chaos in the story of CHEN Che, different memories and time mix together, so we try to use the half-transparency tracing paper ; the drawing and the characters in the work of Li-Pei look so fragile, so we choose a hand-made, very thin paper, which is full of fibre ; in the RCA story, drawing by Yu-Chi, those workers suffered a lot, but they give us a very warm feeling, we finally try to use the Munkedal paper, which is very light and could present a very natural and soft colourr ; the work of Candy bBird and Jimmeh Aitch have a lot of flat colourr, so we chose the ivory paper to have a brilliant ink effect.

New project in progress【FRONTLINE Z.A.】

【FRONTLINE Z.A.】is a anthology of graphic documentaries. All the story is about the social movement in Taiwan. We work for this project from may 2014, and finally make sure the list of authors at the beginning of 2015. Here you can check the profiles of Jimmeh Aitch, YANG Yu-Chi, CHEN Che, HUANG Li-Pei, Candy Bird.
Please looking forward for this project!
