A Graphic Designer’s Taxonomy of Old Photographs

This book was the cumulation of my thesis work and writing from the MFA Design program at California College of the Arts. For this book I remixed elements from fading ephemera to create custom dropcaps and flourishes. I used the back of old photographs as texture. I wrote and organized the book into two sections and designed each differently. The first section explored the philosophical ideas behind what it means to collect old things. The second section showcased my thesis projects.
