Letterpress on paper, laser-cut, and hand-bound
5.5″ x 5.75″ x 0.5″
I wish to offer people an opportunity for a quiet exploration and discovery of typography and its possibilities for expression as simple forms. The O book is an exploration of the letterform O, its roundness and curves and how they can create movement and visual interest. The form of O lends itself well to the idea of seeing or peeking through objects, such as keyholes, thus this became a tunnel book, where the viewer can physically look through the forms and experience the overlap and interaction the letters create.
