Editorial Design

This was our first project upon entering graduate school. We were assigned 12 tasks and were sent around Providence to complete them and to create an archive of materials. I had to take these materials and incorporate them all into a 16 page signature that I then bound into a book with the signatures of my 13 other classmates. I began my tasks by first entering into the Providence Athenaeum, and selecting a few books through the process of chance. I landed on three books which drove the narrative of my spreads: a book of the universe, a poem about a “Matriarch”, and a book about middle eastern mythology. As a result my section of the Atlas maps the Venus Aphrodite Crater, with excerpts of The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, my own writing and images of what I observed during my first weeks in an unknown place.
