Theseus Chan: Print Is Not Dead
Theseus Chan: Print Is Not Dead

There was all this talk about ‘print is dead’. That sort of ... pushed me to the point to prove the opposite.

Theseus Chan

Theseus Chan is known to many in Singapore as the ‘godfather of graphic design’. WERK is one of his creations: a self-published magazine that he started in 2000. Each copy is personalised by hand, collaborating with international artists, designers, and fashion labels to explore how their work can be expressed through book-making and printed matter. There are more than twenty issues of the magazine in the M+ Collections.
