〖關於Ztorybook Issue One〗我們還懂得發問嗎?

當大家正煩惱著在線上線下何去何從,成立接近 4年後的StoryTeller 依然想繼續跟大家一起說更多故事,聽更多故事,不同的是我們更渴求在現實裡跟讀者真實的交流。我們很希望接下來以「書本」這媒介連結讀者。

Ztorybook 是一個籌備了接近兩年的獨立出版計劃。閱讀就好比一趟小旅行。翻開書本,隨著心的想像,我們將會帶領讀者開展一趟又一趟的小旅行。

在資訊泛濫和演算法的網路世界裡,與其煩惱著如何應對,我們認為更重要的是要更有意識去生活。何為有意識?第一步,慢下來。第二步,發問。

小時候,我們每一個都抱著好奇心去不斷發問。長大後卻忘了怎樣發問。Ztorybook 在每一期將發問一個問題,以 12個睡前故事、12件藝術品去回應,連結世界各地的創作人,希望長大後的大人們能好好收藏此書,透過故事連結自己的心,以新的角度看自己看世界。

除了創作人,我們更跟香港本地印刷廠合作,首期的封面特別研究利用感溫油墨製作封面,將文字隱藏在油墨裡,透過觸碰,跟大家一起練習呼吸。

Issue 01 : How to breathe with heart? 如何用心呼吸

一呼一吸,這看似基本的事,在煩擾的城市裡,原來我們都忘了呼吸,你知道嗎?

〖About Ztorybook Issue One〗: Do we still raise questions?

Some of us are struggling about shifts on virtual social platforms, some of us are hesitating about changes in authentic daily lives … Meanwhile, Storyteller has almost reached our fourth year of foundation. Pondering our directions amidst the mist, we are assured to share more stories, and listen to more stories from you. Most importantly, we are sincerely looking forward to more genuine interactions with our readers. For the time being, we truly wish this “book” could link us closer.

Ztorybook is an independent publication project that has been prepared for almost two years. We read as if we are taking a journey. Open the book and use our hearts to imagine, we would love to bring readers towards more heartfelt trips.

Living in an information overflowed world, our every small acts are measured or even recorded. Instead of panicking how to confront, we shall rather focus on living with awareness. How to live with awareness? Firstly, slow down. Secondly, raise questions.

When we were still kids, we raised bountiful questions because of curiosity. After we grow up, we tend to hide confusions and avoid clarifications. A question would be raised in each Ztorybook issue. We then link up different writers and artists, hence to figure out responses by 12 bedtime stories and 12 art pieces.  We hope every grown-up individual could keep the book, so to link your heart with stories, understand your inner self and the world in a new way.

Apart from working with artists, Storyteller collaborates with the local printing workroom. Our first issue's cover has specially adapted thermochemical paint printing, words and secrets are hidden under the paint. Let us practise how to breathe once again from a simple touch.

Issue 01: How to breathe with heart?

Breathing in and out are considered as basic routines in life. However, while we are too busy to slow our pace down, do we still know how to breathe with our hearts?

Previews of Ztorybook's Storyteller:

→ Miha

→ Yoyo Sham

→ Yi Min

→ Chio Hio Tong 

→ Yuichi Hirako

→ Saville Chan

→ Chet Lam

→ Ruo Wu

→ Javier Calleja

→ Shinji Tsuchimochi

→ Joel Kwong

Under no circumstances are we seeking an explicit conclusion. Happiness on the journey outweighs any issues aside,  namely uncertainties or specific endings. Satisfaction is hoped to be sparkled along the way. Let's live along in the power of stories with awareness. Never resist raising questions and making heartfelt decisions.
