Hong Kong is a unique city where Chinese tradition meets with the West; having previously been a colony of the United Kingdom, the city is heavily influenced by Western culture. Using the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals archives collection as references, this paper examines printed and bound objects of Hong Kong during its colonial period and how social changes transform printing and bookbinding technologies. With their fluid style, these somewhat monstrous, hybrid objects reflect their use, functionality, and value of their time. They manifest themselves in a physical form which is subject to the development of the culture of Hong Kong and offers insights into our past.
