In a world glutted with mass-produced products, consumers no longer settle for machined quality. While everyday communications have been augmented by digital interactivity, some designers see the value of establishing dynamic dialogues between print matters and individuals in real life.

Zeroing in on print projects, Hands On is the first book to give fascinating insights into such realm of real-life artefacts that all invite participation and play. With materials as simple as paper and wood, these nearly 100 corporate stationery and event collateral stand out for designers’ painstaking effort in calculating response and resourcefulness in embracing ideas into interactive components. Blow up a letter, solve a puzzle, erect a forest, play a sound — every featured project reveals a distinctive aspect of interactivity with a riveting taste of discovery, creation and surprise only if users act with their own hands.

For a more genuine experience, Hands On asks readers to match up the showcased projects with descriptions separately printed as stickers to complete the book.
