A student project - a hand-made artist book telling the story of Zhuangzi and a butterfly.
"Once Zhuangzi dreamt he was a butterfly...
a butterfly flitting and fluttering around happy with himself and doing as he pleased. He didn't know he was Zhuangzi.

Suddenly he woke up and there he was, solid and unmistakable Zhuangzi.

But he couldn’t tell if he was Zhuangzi who had dreamt he was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming he was Zhuangzi. Between Zhuangzi and a butterfly there must be some distinction!

This is called the Transformation of Things."
