This book analyzes the Hong Kong Pavilion at the British Empire Exhibition in the 1920s and presents an archival item collection. It’s designed with accuracy and consistency to present huge volume of content in different formats (essays in Chinese and English, photos, illustrations and infographics). The dimension (185x252mm) provides sufficient space for presenting the items’ real size. The book jacket’ inside back is a reproduction of the site map with its original size to indicate the location of Hong Kong Pavilion. Nostalgic atmosphere was created through original texts with modern design.
