visible language

Here is a concept for a book I created for typography. Using the poems of gertrude stein, I created layouts based on the ideas of fragmentation, cubism, collage, layering, and simultaneity. I played with repetition of sound and aligning all of the same words on a vertical axis. There are three different poem sections (objects, food, rooms), so I created three styles of type, each getting more structured as the book goes on. This not only allows me to split up the sections, but keeps the reader interested enough to keep going through the book. If i had all the spreads in the same manor, it would become boring and mundaine.
