Typeface Portfolio vol.4


  • 《水浒传》是中国古典四大名著之一,是元末明初施耐庵编著的章回体长篇小说。问世后,在社会上产生了巨大的影响,成了后世中国小说创作的典范。同时也是中国历史上最早用白话文写成的章回小说之一,流传极广,脍炙人口;同时也是汉语言文学中具备史诗特征的作品之一,对中国乃至东亚的叙事文学都有极其深远的影响。
    今年第三遍看《水浒传》,感觉梁山108好汉的绰号很有意思,遂根据自己对人物的理解,对他们的绰号进行了一番设计,先分享一部分,以后再分几期分享出来。

    "The Water Margin" is one of the four famous Chinese classics, and it is a chapter novel written by Shi Naiyang in the late Yuan Dynasty and early Ming Dynasty. After it came out, it had a huge impact on society, and became a model for later Chinese novel creation. At the same time, it is also one of the earliest Zhanghui novels written in vernacular in Chinese history. It is widely spread and popular. It is also one of the epic works in Chinese language and literature, which has a profound impact on Chinese and East Asian narrative literature.
    Looking at "
    The Water Margin" for the third time this year, I felt that Liangshan 108's nickname was very interesting. Based on his understanding of the characters, they designed their nicknames, sharing some of them first, and then sharing them in several issues.

  • 全书通过描写梁山好汉反抗欺压、水泊梁山壮大和受宋朝招安,以及受招安后为宋朝征战,最终消亡的宏大故事,艺术地反映了中国历史上宋江起义从发生、发展直至失败的全过程,深刻揭示了起义的社会根源,满腔热情地歌颂了起义英雄的反抗斗争和他们的社会理想,也具体揭示了起义失败的内在历史原因。

    The whole book describes the grand story of the Song Jiang uprising in Chinese history from its occurrence, development, and failure through the description of Liangshan heroes' resistance to bullying, Shuibo Liangshan's growth and the Song Dynasty's enlistment, as well as the grand story of the Song Dynasty's battle and eventual demise.
