Traditional Vietnamese Medicine - Handbound Book

Jan-April 2019

Growing up as a second generation Vietnamese-American, I was raised with two cultures and therefore, two alternatives to healthcare, one of which was my parent’s traditional methods to treating illness and the other being Western Medicine.

This exposure to two cultures inspired me to design a 47 page double-sided spread book and bring it to life using traditionally ancient Chinese bookbinding techniques. I wanted to challenge my design skill as well as my physical craft-making ability. I was able to create two handbound books using the natural raggedness of recycled Khadi paper to create an overall organic feel.

This first attempt at book making & design was completed from start to finish in less than three months in between other projects.
