書是甚麼?
自語言以物質形式留存以來,很多人給過不同的答案。書本身就是回答這問題的一個開放領域。每一個作家﹑編輯﹑出版人﹑發行商﹑書商﹑讀者,都透過自己的創作﹑閱讀﹑和書本建立的關係去回答這條沒標準答案的問題。

從創作﹑編輯﹑設計,到出版﹑發行﹑銷售,作者和讀者之間的這道橋樑,需要很多人一同建造。自2004年出版第一本書起,到後來開始投身發行﹑參加書展,kubrick亦試著以不同的方式去回應這個問題。藉這次「書展」,我們試著從作者﹑出版人﹑裝幀設計師和讀者幾個面向,為kubrick所做的這份答卷作一小結。

What is a book?
Since the languages have been recorded and written, many people have given a lot of answers. Book by itself is an open platform to answer this question without standard answer. Every writer, editor, publisher, distributor, bookshop, designer and reader can give out their answers through their connections with books.

From writing, editing and typesetting to printing, distributing and sales, different parties are involved in order to bridge the authors and readers up. kubrick published our first book in 2003, and later we also involved in distribution and book fair. We find ways to answer the question 「what is book?」 all these years. In this 「Book Fair」, we would try to review in prospective of publisher, book designer and reader, to prepare a small conclusion on what kubrick did for this question.
