Project / Malacca: Voices from the Street
Task / Book Design
Client / Lim Huck Chin & Fernando Jorge (self-published)
Year / 2006
Details / 8" x 10.5", 368 pages
A book that explores the history and stories of 20 streets in Malacca. This well-researched book was a welcome alternative to the coffee-table picture books.
The authors, Lim Huck Chin and Fernando Jorge, are architects; and were part of a team which restored a Dutch-period shophouse in Malacca into a heritage resource centre.
We worked closely with Huck Chin throughout the whole process, poring over a thousand images and pages of stories to deliver a tome that simultaneously celebrates and evokes the eternal spirit of Malacca and its people.
