h-y-p-h-e-n is an illustrative solitaire zine published by Open Quote. Having invited different illustrators to retell and recreate classic literature, this could bring readers a new sensation and insight.
The zine combines diversified styles in which it is also a platform for communication of local illustrators. Through the publication, original artwork exhibition and events, it allows the general public to recognize the creative arts in Hong Kong.
At current, two issues have been published, Alice in Wonderland and Snow White. Similar to the idea of the ‘Storytelling game’, each publication includes several illustrators that collaborate as narrators to tell a spontaneous story. The concept of these zines is to maintain the original characters in the stories, whilst changing and developing the plot to prompt a surprise ending.
