Book created for a Visual Metaphor class during my studies at Parsons. My task was to come up with a book that explored the word 'maze' as concept, language and content.
The state of being lost was used as a starting point for the material structure: it consists of three different books, in which the main one is folded in a non-linear way instead of binded. This way, the user can go through the whole material however he or she wants to, or even get lost in it. The maze was also explored as a visual queue for the sleeve and the books and as a theme for the main piece, which goes through a personal curation of texts and images that dialogue about being lost in our own lives.
The content is divided into three different print pieces, one of them being a folder that introduces the book and lists all the content. The main book (gray) contains all the imagery and texts in one side and a giant maze on the opposite side. The last piece, entitled 'Bmaze', is a perfect-bind puzzle book full of small mazes that could be detached once you go through them.
 
Livro criado para uma aula durante o ano que estudei na Parsons. A tarefa era criar um livro que explorasse a palavra 'labirinto' como conceito, linguagem e conteúdo.
Estar perdido foi usado como um ponto inicial para a estrutura do material, aonde o principal dos três livros é dobrado de forma não-linear ao invés de encadernado. Dessa forma, o leitor pode usar o material da forma que desejar, e até mesmo se perder nele. O labirinto também foi usado como inspiração visual para a capa e os livros e como temática para o livro principal, passando por uma curadoria de imagens e textos que discute sobre estarmos perdidos em nossas próprias vidas.
O conteúdo está dividido em três partes, sendo uma delas um folder que introduz o livro e relaciona as referências utilizadas. O livro principal (cinza) contém todas as imagens e textos de um lado e um labirinto gigante do outro que pode ser recombinado, permitindo infinitas formas de se jogar. O último, chamado 'Bmaze', consiste em um livreto com diversos labirintos que podem ser destacados quando completos.
