Booklet with fold-out score for Hong Kong University

The University of Hong Kong needed a book honouring departing vice-cancellor Lap-Chee Tsui. We proposed a deluxe hardcover book with hand-sewn sections and a CD on the inside backcover. Furthermore the book contains a foldout of the full score of the university anthem composed over 100 years ago.
The design proves that one-colour doesn't need to be boring. You could even call the black and white design - inspired by artworks by David Clarke that are included in the book - colorful!

"Very good feedback in general! :) Thank you so much!!!"

The CD containts a recording of the university anthem in a new orchestration by Chan Hing-yan, performed by the Hong Kong Symfonietta conducted by Yip Wing-sie. The booklet is also presented as a gift to important visitors and special guests.
