Zeen Chin's first art illustration publication Re-Child 《返童》is a collection of inspirations from his childhood living across a Taoist temple. Reflecting upon the "disparity of children and grown-ups", Zeen Chin focused on the memories and carefree whimsical moments he had in the past and lets it playfully takeover his paintings. The book has almost 100 pages of full color illustrations, a few pieces of black ink paintings, and some paragraphs about the artist.
Re-Child uses stitch binding allowing for the book to opened 180 degrees laid flat, for the best reading experience. It also comes with a collectors edition kraft paper box to protect and store the book, featuring art by Zeen Chin.
