Celebration of Chinese New Year – Illustration

Specs: 5″ x 6″ – 18 pages double sided

Although I now live in Vancouver and have adapted to the Western Culture over the many years, Chinese traditions will always have a special place in my heart, particularly Chinese New Year. In Asia, the new year is more than just a single day event. Being bigger than Christmas, it is stretched across 15 days to ensure absolute success when entering a new year.

Wanting to spread and help explain these traditions to those close to me, I created  an accordion fold booklet with 18 panels with a tie to hold it together when closed. This multi-functional booklet expands to display a hand-illustrated typographic banner on one side detailed information of the series of events on the back.
