This book was created to reflect the subject of ‘Taboo’. Content is the key of the project. ‘Taboo’ is from the Tongan word, meaning prohibited, disallowed, forbidden. After researching national meaning of this word, I chose Chinese foot binding as the content. Foot binding is one of the symbol taboo in china which has existed 1000 years. The text is from a interview. I identified a concept of restriction in ‘bind’. This is a small book, which explores the sense of restriction. The outside cover is inspired by the cloth which used on binding feet. The layout of book was inspired from traditional English newspaper and Chinese ancient book.
