This project was for the International Society of Typographers brief for 2023 which is an organisation that celebrates typography and its depiction.
There were multiple briefs to choose from and I chose the one titled ''Open/Close''. This was the challenge of finding a book on the public domain and creating a piece expressing the stories opening and closing chapters using typography.
The book I chose was the original story of Winnie the Pooh published by A.A Milne in 1926 just a few years after he served in World War 1 which he was strongly against.
The piece has a theme based on escaping the real world and delving into our childlike innocence, relating both to a lot of adults today looking for any small bit of nostalgia or even Milne himself after serving in a battle which most likely caused him mental torment afterwards.
I created posters (image) to depict this as there was a lot of freedom in this format and I experimented with photography and watercolours alongside the adventure of playing with typography
