ABOUT THE BOOK

 

A visual memoir like no other, Once Upon A Hong Kong is a stirring collection of personal work by local artist-illustrator Don Mak which captures everyday life in an ever-changing metropolis. Each painting is a poignant reflection of what Hong Kong has become today as a tribute to his beloved home and a legacy that he hopes to pass on to his daughter. Featuring a striking use of colour in Mak’s signature style and a meaningful narrative by his collaborator Miss Black Cat, the bilingual book (Traditional Chinese & English) serves as a time capsule to be cherished for those who hold Hong Kong in their hearts.

 

一千個人眼中有一千個香港。這個城市包容又獨立,洋溢着自由而奮進的靈魂。今天香港遊走在分岔路口,紛亂的言語指往不同的方向。插畫師麥震東受捷克作家M.Sasek啟發,以畫筆記錄香港此刻的日常風景,讓小女兒看到這個城市此刻在他眼中的模樣;配合黑貓小姐的文字,留下給未來的話語。充滿生活氣息的畫面,帶來讓心靈安穩的節奏;看那些尋常的當下,如何散發動人微光。
