san francisco, style, fashion, travel, lifestyle curated by Ariel Tzu-Chi

Fashion is about projecting where you're going in life.

Therefore, life is fashion, fashion is style.

That's the lifestyle I am producing. 
 

風尚是一種生活品味的投射

因此生活即是風尚,風尚便是品味

這就是我想實踐的生活方式

City Livin' | Taipei: Ri-Xing Type Foundry / 日星鑄字行


I am a sucker for the dying arts. That said, it is definitely a perk to me being in an art school and having the chance to get my hands on these fading treasures. I visited Ri-Xing in Taipei to buy some types for future usage and oh lord, I can easily spent hours in the shop. As the only remaining place in the world that carries a complete set of lead-type traditional Chinese characters, Ri-Xing is a place full of history and the beauty of art. I can't wait to learn more about it. 

一個人旅行的時候,越是難找的店,越想去。日星鑄字行就是那常駐在日常小巷裡,經年累月的存在。我或許是個老古板,對於電腦軟體有說不出的厭斥,但對於手動的創作,卻有無比的耐心。越傳統的藝術,越想學。

等了好幾年,終於能去拜訪日星。買了幾個鉛字,希望之後學凸版印刷的時候能派上用場。


Characters I got and my poorly printed tests.

這是試印。我想我是一個質數是我私人部落格的名字,宋體印起來好好看。
