〖About Ztorybook〗: Do we still raise questions?
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?
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.
