Book design for Arthub Asia.
In August 2009, cultural practitioners from around the world came together to discuss and reflect on the dynamic, ongoing echoes of the now-defunct Silk Road trading route and its multiple dimensions. As a four-day symposium, The Making of The New Silk Roads aimed to reassess the complex interconnections within Asia's cultural and artistic spectrum at the beginning of the 21st century.
