《鲛》

“The book is alive, how much enthusiasm is invested, and how much charm is rewarded.” When it comes to the feelings of book design, Wen Aiyi repeated this sentence twice in an interview with the reporter《中国新闻出版广电报》.

Wen Yiyi, who began publishing his work at the age of 14, is a writer, poet, and translator. He has published more than 200 books, including more than 60 poems. Although he is not a full-time book designer, he will repeatedly refine his design and work with designers on every book he has written, translated and compiled. At present, he has 11 books that have been awarded "the most beautiful book in China", and《文爱艺诗集》has become "the most beautiful book in the world."

Where is his book beautiful? How did this beauty come from? Through interviews, the answers to these questions are gradually clear.

"Blocking" is the concept of outdated

After hearing the reporter want to understand his views on "binding", Wen Aiyi first said: "I think 'frame-binding' is a concept of obsolescence. More than 30 years of experience tells me that it is a good 'frame-mounting' without binding."

Compared with "frame decoration", Wen Aiyi prefers to use the word "book design" instead. He thinks that the decoration is more emphasis on decoration. However, the decoration can only be called "beautiful" and cannot be called "beauty" because Beauty is natural. Wen Aiyi said that the content determines the form, and if the form of the book design can express the content well, then it is a good design.

Combining his knowledge of book design and then reading his book, I can better understand the meaning.

xx《文爱艺诗集》他在2011年被评为“中国最佳书籍”和2012年“世界上最美丽的书”。事实上,这本书并不华丽,封面只有白色的红色,没有眼睛 - 捕捉图片,没有烫金装饰。但是,当单独拆下盖子,然后取下盖子和精装盖时,你会发现它上面有一个洞。

关于诗人作品的评论以白色显示。整个封面的背面设计得像一个秘密,等待读者发展和叹息。

封面下的包装的精装封面是柔和的豆绿色。值得一提的是,“文爱一诗”的封面是突出的,就像一个浮雕,后盖的标题是凹陷,类似于沉没这种有趣的回声让人不禁感叹设计师的在阅读过程中的意图。

通过这本书,记者对几张图片的选择印象深刻。这本书使用了具有简单构图和场景的油画,以及木刻版画和照片。例如,《这些小花……》是未知花朵的照片。当读者仔细阅读时,还有另一个值得注意的细节,就是书页上的三个切口都是红色的,这让人们认为学生时代的活页纸的印章往往是红色的,但现在出版了这本书。国家就像把很多诗歌分别写在手稿纸上,这是非常“固定”的。

用诗人的想象力进行大胆的创新

《文爱艺诗集》突破传统的设计细节,充满浪漫情怀和想象力,这恰好符合诗人的品质。然而,谈论他首先关注书籍设计的原因,但并非所有与浪漫有关。

温艾伊说,20或30年前,盗版书仍然非常尴尬。在出售好的诗歌集后,他很快就能看到盗版。反盗版版本如何?温爱伊想到了从设计和印刷开始。温爱伊《梦裙》的早期诗歌是我自己设计的。本书中的文字是蓝绿色的。这与想要表达诗歌对世界的渴望的年轻人非常相容,但当时印刷文本的情况很少见。有色的温艾伊长期与出版社和印刷厂沟通,实施这样的设计。这本书出版后,这是一种轰动,发行量很大。现在,许多出售这本书的商店都可以在孔子书上找到。而在当时,由于双色印刷的高成本,这样的设计确实起到了反盗版的作用。

除了视觉上的创新,温艾懿还大胆巧妙地丰富了书籍的品味体验。温艾伊介绍说他30年前有一本有气味的书,他有一种持久的香味。现在他用“香香”打开书柜,闻到香味。 “香树”是怎么来的?温艾伊介绍说有两种方法可以实现它。一种是将精华调整为墨水直接打印。如果墨水与香料不相容,则需要另一种方法。打印完单词后,本质被视为一个图层。颜色再次刷,书有气味。

创新仍在继续。即使在2016年和2017年的“中国最美书”的“0x9A8B”中,第12版采用的波浪形设计可以完全展开,可以达到几十米。而这本书仍然是一部“限量版”,全球限量999套,每本书都有独特的代码。

重复的修订是由于对书的热爱

温艾依对书籍的热爱和高要求可以说是深层骨髓。在谈到最近设计的这本书时,温爱义告诉记者他与日本诗人金光清的诗集《文爱艺爱情诗集》和传奇的“洗书”过程中的尴尬故事。

During a visit to Japan, Wen Aiyi saw a sealed old book in an old bookstore in Tokyo. The carton was printed with a plaque-printed ancient Chinese version of the plate. The plate was printed with gold on it. The words "light sunny poetry". Wen Aiyi wants to open it, but the owner insists on the payment to be opened, 20,000 yuan, one point can not be less. Perhaps it is destined to do so, under the premise that a little information is not understood, Wen Aiyi did not hesitate to buy the book. Unpacking the plastic seal, he found that the book was Yudav's title, and the book was first published in 1937. Wen Aiyi returned to the hotel with the fastest speed, locked the door, and carefully put the book box, book cover, protective cover, cover, front ring lining, front plaque, front page, body text, copyright page, rear ring lining, The back cover was cleaned in order and washed all night. After washing him, he found that his lips were frozen, but he was unaware.

In order to make this anti-war poet's work more known, Wen Aiyi and the Japanese translator Seikawa Shinichi translated the collection of poems《鲛》and carefully designed. The cover paper was hand-made and presented with water ripples. The main color of the text is gray-blue, reflecting the theme of the book everywhere.

Recently, Wen Aiyi learned a good news,《鲛》(12th edition) wave type folded,《文爱艺爱情诗集》both won the 2019 American Benny Award. However, behind the honor is the process of modifying the polishing process over and over again.

In the circle of friends of Wen Aiyi, his records of revision and book design often appear. He will also ask everyone in the circle of friends which version is better. He was not bored with the revision, and he saw the change as a "continuous review process." At the same time, he used Liu Xiaoxiang, a book designer who has cooperated with him for many times, to emphasize that a good book designer should carefully read the book before designing, and even participate in the book creation process with the author. With such input, the beauty of life can be condensed in books.
