THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA: EXPRESSIVE BOOK

Intermediate Studio, Spring 2015: Extracted a quote from Ernest Hemingway's novel "The Old Man And The Sea" and graphically situated the text in such a way that it created book on its own. Complete with an introduction and design brief, this interpretation of the classic quote creates a story within itself.

I created two iterations of the book [shown below] that incorporated two different types of covers to appeal to different target markets. While both are primarily made with wood, the first was covered with a map of Cuba and the title embossed. The second was raster cut with an industrial laser cutter and then painted.
