DRACULA 德古拉

This classic vampire story was written by Bram Stoker and published in 1897. 

Set in the 19th century, the story tells of how a group of people, led by the legendary Professor Abraham Van Helsing, fight back against the cursed vampire, Dracula, and prevent him from making more of his kind. 

Dracula is different from the other vampire stories in that the undead creature is not an ugly brute of a monster but a handsome, clever and well-mannered nobleman. Although the novel was not initially a success, it was later turned into countless adaptations as novels, films and games.

ROALD DAHL 羅爾德.達爾

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was an ace fighter pilot, a medical inventor, and a chocolate historian, but he is best known for his children fiction, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The BFG. 

Dahl is good at applying playful language and his own invented funny words in his children works. There is even an Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary where all the vocabulary he invented is collected. The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre is located in Great Missenden, where Dahl spent most of his time writing and living.

DIGITAL PRINTING 數碼印刷

In its short 24-year history, digital printing has drastically changed the ecosystem of the printing industry. By using the technique of digitalisation, which is the process of converting images and texts into tiny dots called pixels, it allows people to print materials directly from their computers.

Compared to traditional printing, digital printing is more convenient and economical. It can also be applied to more diverse material, such as plastic, glass and metal. 

Success!
