Description

This collection of books encompasses an ongoing personal graphic design project. Each book typographically explores a different song by a different band, each a favorite. The intent is for each book to accompany its song, much like a lyric video would, stylistically drawing from the mood of the music. As one hears the song and interacts with the book, it becomes an experience for multiple senses. Music has been and continues to be a source of inspiration in many of my design and art projects. The idea was partially inspired by previous assignments encountered in the Graphic Design program at ODU, and partially by the songs themselves. Each book becomes a typographic and stylistic exercise as I experiment with new techniques. Some of these include making marks with pine needles in ink and spray paint, and photographing metallic pigments suspended in water. Each book was digitally composed using Adobe InDesign and Photoshop. The spreads were printed at home with an Epson Stylus R2000 on Inkpress Duo Matte 80 paper, and perfect bound. They were then assembled by hand with covers wrapped in inkjet canvas.
