About This Project:

The goal of this project was to design a small, expressive book using an excerpt of text from our favorite novel using only typography and black ink.

Fahrenheit 451 was the perfect subject for this project because it opened itself up to so many visual metaphors through it’s expressive dialogue that focuses on the loss of knowledge.

To convey this important thematic element, as you read, each page is cut shorter and features less text than the previous until the climax of this passage where the pages return to full size but are now dark and harsh, representing the reality of a world without books.
