讀死書Study Die Book Erasers

Students in Hong Kong are always reminded that grades carry a deep burden to them. Many are still expected to become lawyers, doctors, engineers or anything that are not art and design career-related.

The Cantonese phrase: 讀死書 (Duk Sei Syu), or the word-to-word meaning: Study Die Book, is imprinted to mock the city’s rigid education system onto stationaries that the local students always use.

A lot of unfortunate students do not have mental support and teenage suicide rates are high in Hong Kong, as they literally study to death. 

The packet contains two erasers.
