Open Book Workshop
2012

I Am Not Famous examines an alternative to a sixteen page book signature. Each eight-page signature, printed front and verso, was stitched into two gutters of the cover; with a significant interior tab. The work and turn pages were left un-trimmed, generating essentially four 11” x 17” interior posters. The page typography is turned upside down, and pagination is left broken.

The book uses personal journal text and photography originated at Gemini Farm.

Design Education

STUDENT PROJECT:
We Make Adventures With What’s Called Choice
Publication Design
Fall 2011
UW–Stout

Publication created by the Fall 2011 Publications Design class. Students: Jennifer Hackett, Timothy Hirschey, Susan Lepro, Hailee Mierow, Ashley Moncrief, Leah Monson, Mackenzie Owens, Micayla Sipe, Caitlin Teague, Daniel Thiede, Lou Vang.

This collaborative book was created by a Publication Design class at UW–Stout. The predominate theme of the book is a collected data set. The content is collected through a Q & A format. The group determined a series of fifteen questions based on general categories of interest. A sixteenth question, based on Occupy Wallstreet and The Other 99%, was uniformly asked through social media sites.

STUDENT PROJECT:

This studio workshop explores various aspects of font design and development for creative and expressive ends.
