leMook 11

UBC Literature Etc.
Art Director
Summer 2007

The 11th issue of leMook is also my first issue as the art director. Prior to this volume, leMook was printed only in black and white (excluding the cover), and focused heavily on the literary content while giving little attention to the art direction. Luckily, Dreamism was the topic, and thus it corresponded to our goal of a colourful and artistically rich leMook. This is our pioneer, the first issue to have colour pages.

UBC Literature Etc. was founded in the summer of 2002 by Elisa Chiu, a former undergraduate student at UBC, passionate in all aspects of art. She particularly wanted to collect Chinese literary works from all around the globe and publish a semi-annual magazine (April, September) based in Vancouver, now named "leMook", that is completely written, illustrated, and designed by students. Today, this publication has become the basis for our club.
