Word Book review

12 May

this project came from a previous idea from the 100 breif. Myself and joe decided to make into a project on its own. the idea was to portray the word through its meaning i.e. origami would be made from folded paper letters

We went through what seemed thousands of possible words and ideas for this. originally we were gonna display them on a wall  and have each square mounted seperately but thought with the time scale we had against us with the end of uni getting closer and closer we decide we had to have a different approach. so we set of in search of a cheap publishing site and came a across blurb.com and it was perfect, relitevly cheap and good quality.

Overall i enjoyed this project i feel it has brought my creativity out which i havent used in a while. We started this project in full optimism, thinking it was such a fun creative idea, as we went along the passion did die a little but we are still very pleased with the final result, some words didnt work quite as well as first thought but overall i think it was a success. It is a good feeling to have a proper product at the end of a project and feels really good to have my name on the front of a book, hopefully this isnt the only book that will have my input.

Ive i were going to redo this project i would rethink some of the words we used trying to keep them all on the same theme this would help the flow of the book. This project has given us a great experience into publishing and a better understanding of type and its anatomy.

Here is some photos from the book;
