《咏树》  Ode to the Tree

赵清

南京,中国

 

 

This is a collection of five hundred poems about trees.According to the names of nearly ninety tree species, a unique font was designed.Inspired by the form of the tree, the book extracts the different characteristics of 89 tree species, and runs through the paper in the form of illustrations.In the book, the red dots running through and the hole design are compared to the tree rings, which are interesting to simulate the shapes of ancient wood.The poems in the text are mostly composed in vertical type, which is similar to ancient books and has more charm, while the annotations are arranged in horizontal lines, with different word spacing and line spacing in each line.The whole black of the text and the whole white of the text form a strong contrast. Between black and white, one side is like the foundation of a tree, immersed in the earth, silent and silent, and the other side is like branches and leaves, rising towards the sun and looking up at the sky.

这是一本关于树的五百首诗歌合集。根据近九十个树种名称,设计了独特的字体。全书以树的形态作为灵感,提取了89个树种的不同特点,以插图的形式贯穿于纸张之间。书中将贯穿的红点与开孔设计比拟树的年轮,别有生趣地模拟出古木的形态。正文的诗歌多采用了竖式排版,与古籍相仿,更有韵味,而注释部分则采用横排,每一排的字距行距都个不相同。篇章页的全黑与正文的全白形成了强烈的对比,黑白之间,一面就像是树的根基,沉浸与泥土之中,静默不言,一面就像是枝叶,向日而生,仰望天际。
