    highlight a narrative rythm with patterns. Project made for my diploma DNAP in 2013.
A visual and graphic reading of a narration through patterns.
In graphic art, design, painting or fashion, a pattern is a shape of forms,
colors that are repeted regulary.

Seven recurrent feelings were picked up
from the book Fear and loathing in Las Vegas
 written by Hunter S. Thompson in 1971.

Paranoia, hallucinations, violence, silence, madness, noise and fear.

Starting from a grid, a color and a pattern come to a feeling.

Green Pantone 802U > Paranoia
Turquoise > Hallucinations
Red > Violence
Selected varnish > Silence
Orange Pantone 804U > Madness
Grey Pantone 548C > Noise
Purple > Fear

These patterns were silkscreened on the original book, translating its rythm throughout the tale.
A second volume, blank, was created to strengthen the idea of evolution
and let patterns express by themselves.
Vol. 1
Vol. 2
The silence, paradoxically, very loud, is represented by a block of paper lightely spangled
and silkscreened in selected varnish.
Thinking the book also as an object, the edge was silkscreened with a quadricolor gradation. 
In this way, the edge plays the role of the back cover of a book, like a summa.
