Read My Mind
Using vintage book pages not only enables me to re-use and recycle but it also gives me the opportunity to celebrate the letterpress printers of the past, to admire their mastery and highlight their skills.
These aging, fragile text pages and the contemporary overprint using fluorescent inks and vintage wood type illustrate the contrast between the old and the new. They demonstrate the differences between the boldness of wood type and the delicate refinement of metal type.
The concept is a reference to the beauty of books, they are not just to be read and discarded but loved and enjoyed for their physical structure and visual aesthetic.
