AIGA 100 Show Merit Award winner.
This book was a collaborative university project where my classmates and I examined things that we were repressing and hiding from. The book consists of 15 individual pieces bound together. Its introduction invites you to "expose and explore" the book in two ways: by unhinging the binding clasp and experiencing each piece as a poster, or by tearing the perferated edges.
My piece deals with fear; those that I hide from with the most effort. The blind emboss layer enumerates my greatest fears and hides them from immediate view.
I was involved in conceptualizing the piece, and creating the cover and binding, as well as contributing my own poster. Each piece is letter-pressed using a combination of wood type and vinyl plates.
Denying Denial was accepted to the AIGA 100 Show and given the award of merit at the fabulous Leonardo Museum in Salt Lake city.
