By Chen Yi-ching and Jake Chung  /  Staff reporter, with staff writer

Chiaos said the book has given him the chance to be like a movie director in that he had full autonomy over its setting, cast of characters and atmosphere, adding that the project also allowed him to portray his ideals.

A Taiwan Monsters exhibition will be held in Taipei’s Garden City Bookstore until April 20 that Chiaos said he mounted with financial help from online crowdfunding campaigns and NT$150,000 out of his own pocket.

“We hope that the people who come to see the exhibit or who read the book will come away with a new perspective on Taiwan, one in which culture is more prominent,” Chiaos said.
