The Power of Jade

Typographic Zine (2021)

This booklet shows a collection of jade items from the Smithsonian collection. Each item has a tagline indicating its historical background. All of the items picked are from different dynasties in Ancient China. The reason that I picked jade items is that one of the characters in my Chinese name means “jade”. By selecting these objects, I believe that this not only showcases the various collections from the Smithsonian Institution, but also elevates the project to a personal level.
