Singapore India: Towards a Shared Future (2015)

Books

The special edition’s hardback outer cover, featuring a pure white look with engraved pearlescent details, pays tribute to the national flags of both countries.

This volume commemorates 50 years of strong bilateral ties between Singapore and India, built upon the foundations of a shared (post)colonial struggle and hard-won diplomatic, cultural and economic partnerships. The special edition’s hardback outer cover, featuring a pure white look with engraved pearlescent details, pays tribute to the national flags of both countries. Various aspects of the design—including the cover and the typographical layout—feature interlocking elements, representing how the developmental narratives of both nations enlace and embrace each other across geography and temporality. Gently easing open the cover also reveals how a vivid colour scheme, again evoking both nations’ flags, seamlessly coheres across the pages for consistent readability.
