Nice to meet you, I’m Lili. As a curious designer of communication, I strive to promote unity through visual identities, editorial and printed matter.

Books About Books

Books About Books is a collection of experimental publications, designed in response to my interviews with women concerned with book arts. Each conversation determines the concept and the look of the book.

This book arose out of my curiosity to discover and learn Genevieve's craft—the art of papermaking. Naturally, some things didn't go to plan, but this artful sculpture stands as a manifestation of my learning process; praising the all-important trial-and-error experimentation. My interview with Genevieve lives between layers of pulp, with traces of text unexpectedly, and yet beautifully surfaced.
