On the Pulse of Morning by Maya Angelou


Book Design

A redesign of On The Pulse of Morning by Maya Angelou. The intention of the redesign is to express the words of the poem while pairing with a carefully curated selection of black and white photos by American photographers such as Ansel Adams, Minor White, Robert Frank and Imogen Cunningham etc. This book is printed on a Crest natural white paper, Japanese stitched by hand and french bounded. This book was set in Mercury, a serif typeface family designed by Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones in 1996.

Exhibited at the “We Still Imagine, Make and Read Books” Artist Book Fair in Space776 on 17–19 June 2016.
