Best of Luck


Good and bad luck are elusive, like a lover’s heart, unpredictable and forever changing. Perhaps good fortune really can be summoned; if there’s no luck today, changing one’s perspective to call it again, might bring tomorrow the best of luck.

Love Letter


#Confess #Printing #Type printing #Tree #Book #Protolanguage
“Love Letter” is an illustrated poem with the Taiwanese-language.

This Love Letter is a confession of love to the author’s mother language, to trees, to books, to the entire process of book-making.

On the Road to Santa Fe


#travel#on the road
In 2018, illustrator Ali Ginger faced a crossroads in her personal and creative life. At the end of 2019, she set out for Santa Fe, New Mexico for a three-month residency that changed her outlook and her style. The continental landscapes of North America were so different from the tropical island of Taiwan, and she met interesting and friendly people from all over the world. These experiences changed her work as well. Both there and back at home, new elements began appearing in her images. In this expansive and strange land, she rediscovered her passion for her work and her true self.

The Short Elegy


An elegy is a song or poem lamenting the deceased. In each loss there is a gain, just as in every gain there is a loss. This adage is underscored in each of The Short Elegy’s three short stories—Dry River, House Mosquito, and The Ribbon—each of which offers fleeting glimpses of death.
