Falling Leaves


Finalist in NewOne awards for Editorial Design


Many thanks to Dandan, John, Jenny and James.

Bound by a hybrid of Coptic and Chinese four-hole stitching, this publication aims to show four different perspectives on being a Chinese first-generation immigrant in the UK. Each person will be interviewed on their first experiences living in the UK, their current feelings and where they feel at home most. However, the publication will also include some of their interest, what they like to do in either China or the UK, and bring insight into their character and how they’ve lived here.

The book tells their story through film photography, archival images, and kept objects. It’s for an older generation of British Chinese citizens, for the people who may not have the voice to tell their experiences. This is also for the later generations of British Chinese people as we look further into the life of our elders and how they’ve lived life in a country far from their own.
