Art of the Book | Personal project
My goal was to create pure artist books crafted to appreciate the forms held inside. The food pyramid became the concept of the project. I thought it would be interesting to create five icons for each food group, breaking the food groups down to their very core. The categories are fat, dairy, grain, protein, fruit, and vegetables.
Two versions of each icon were made, and die cuts were utilized in the spreads to create visual interactions. After finishing and binding all spreads, each book was wrapped with colorful fibrous papers to enhance the naturalness of the food. Each book was also given a slipcover to display the food group. The end product is six books contained in a slipcase.
