The objective of this assignment was to use a poem and create a very experimental book with the type. I chose the poem “Sun/Right in my Eye” by Charles Olson. I used my own imagery, handwriting and other found fonts to manipulate the text and create a sort of “sketchbook” filled with the words from the poem. I pushed the boundaries of a “normal” book cover and used cut outs to further enhance the color of the sun, as well as to introduce an element of play and interaction.
