THE VISUAL BOOK
2018, PUBLICATION, Typography, Photography, Book Binding
This publication focuses on how composition can allow text and image to reflect one another. I used the text to guide the subject of the photos, while the image compositions influenced the placement of the text. Inspired by the simplicity of children’s books and the in intricacy of books from arts and crafts movement, the minimal compositions showcase a selection of books that compliments the development of printing. Taking advantage of active negative space, clear typographic decisions, and carefully framed photography, the publication presents a history of books that is influenced both by the past and lives in the contemporary.
