ha wan pao paper
Ha Wan Pao is a Hong Kong based zine about people who make beautiful things.
Whether they’re making comic books, tofu or shoes; what they have in common is the quiet pursuit of excellence.
Founder Anna Gleeson contacted me some time ago about carrying this oh-so cute publication, and I just couldn’t resist.
The layout and candor of her written tone is just so charming.
Here’s her description of this latest issue;
“I have issue 8 in my hot little hands – posting to stockists next week.
I have made some changes; most notably, the price. I started ha wan pao as a fun little project, to get out of the house and talk to people. I decided I would work for free and not pay my contributors. I have changed my mind and decided to pay myself and my contributors. So the price has gone up to hk$60. I also changed the format a little. I’ve made it thicker, more compact and given it a cover so as to be a little more robust. The content is the same.
This issue has an interview with an ikebana practitioner and curator, a documentary comic publisher and a rare book dealer. There is a contribution from furze chan on what it is to run a shop and a photo essay by me of chinese paper offerings for the dead. on the cover is a paper singlet.
Hope you enjoy it!”
Ha Wan (下環) is an old name for wanchai – the hong kong neighbourhood where the project was born.
