TYPE OF WORK: Book Design, Typography
YEAR COMPLETED: 2010
SPECIFICATIONS: 5” x 7” Book
To combine an excerpt from “The Phantom Tollbooth” book with a secondary text, in order to convey a third underlying meaning with the ability to read both texts together or independently.
The context behind my design stems from a humorous detail in the original excerpt, where the character enters a world that is governed by ridiculous laws, such as prohibiting the act to laugh and so forth. With this in mind I decided to inset laws that believe it or not still exist in America today. Housed in an authentic Law Dictionary, my book is designed to deliver the unexpected with its presentation, humorous content and concept.
I’m a huge fan of Law & Order: SVU and have always loved watching crime related movies and TV shows.
