This is a hand-made book with custom-made bamboo paper. The papers were teared into small pieces and pasted on the book covers. So every book has a unique look as a result of this random tearing of paper. For the layout of the book, we made different fragments in each page to restore the features of Mogao Caves as much as we can. It seems like an old and broken book. The book expresses the historical feeling of Mogao Caves and shows special beauty. The production of this handmade book not only enhances the non-reproducibility of each book, but also highlights the experience of the book itself.
