Slumber | Awakening is a personal story published in a poetic form. Both poems Slumber and Awakening were written by myself. Completely handcrafted, this double-sided book was designed and pressure printed on Rives Heavyweight paper using Letterpress.
The design elements are a mixture of graphics in relation to the poems and are abstracted. Slumber is a story of being caged and sheltered and Awakening is the second installment about release and independence. The abstracted design starts with a congested state using dark gray tones, eventually progressing openness and clarity using cooler turquoise tones.
The book is encased in a handcrafted envelope packaging.
