The Great Word At Last (Winter 2012)

An atlas (The Great World Atlas) repurposed as a collection of black-out love poems. For the exterior, I reversed the book’s cover to reveal the original pastedown and refitted the pages into a new book cloth spine.

Morphs (Fall 2010)

A black-out text of selected scenes and stories in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, with the purpose of illuminating, enlivening, and scandalizing what originally was there.



The Colour Out of Space (Fall 2010)

For this project, I typeset the text of H. P. Lovecraft’s short story “The Colour out of Space” via typewriter on hand-washed pages, illuminated the text with calligraphy and paper-cut illustrations, and finally bound the signatures through the “sewing through the fold” technique into a redesigned hardcover .
