My goal was to create pure artist books crafted to appreciate the forms held inside, and no text would be needed. 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 a colorful fibrous paper to also enhance the naturalness of the food. Each book was also wrapped in a slipcover to display the food group. The end product is all six books contained in a slipcase.
