Selene is a serif text face designed to match the tone of Andrea Levy’s novel, Small Island. It is all about brave, loyalty, and optimism in difficulties. Its almost straight bracket and triangular serifs make it both strong, warm, and also contemporary.

I simulated the working way of the GAN, which has two sub-networks, a generator and a discriminator. The discriminator is used to discriminate between real images and the fake images that are generated by the generator. In this Cookbook, the generator is like a chef in a cook school and the discriminator is like a teacher and a gastronome in the cook school. The text in the recipe is also generated by machine.

Galls are swelling growth on the external tissues of plants, fungi, or animals. In an era dominated by nuclear energy, people suffer from death, mutation, and starvation. However, plants can always survive despite chronic radiation exposure by using their plant hormones and cell walls to reduce radiation effects through protein transformation. Scientists injected chemicals extracted from plants into human body and turned people and plants into symbionts. As plants grow up, they surround the body and become a protective shield for humans.
