“Book is a book is a book is a book” is a book about books and is the result of my academic research in Editorial Practices around the theme of “the book as an object of experimentation for the designer”. With this project I researched and implemented a contemporary, practical and engaging way to showcase, in book form, historical books. The graphic design of the book is a fundamental element of the project and is explored in a way that showcases these rare and amazing cultural assets in an engaging manner to a modern reader. The physical and sensory potential of the book as object are at the forefront of this project.
This book intends to build a bridge between these restricted, and immensely interesting elements of our culture, and the general public, using graphic design and all the amazing potential of the printed book as a catalyst for a contemporary showcase of historical books.
