Book Redesign

    Edwin Abbott Abbott wrote this cutting-edge examination of dimensionality, and our ability to percieve ours and other worlds, in the late 1800s. Not until nearly a century later, when Einstein's theories of relatvity were revealed, was any credence paid to the ideas presented in this wonderful tale that's half critique of victorian society, and half science lesson for radical thinkers. I wanted to bring the ecclectic, under-appreciated, book new life by modernizing the look, and playing up the duality of its nature.

    Bring the publication up to date while paying homage to its historic origins.

    A combination of precise vector elements and bold modern type were paired with more traditional, oldstyle typfaces and victorian embellishments. Design cues were borrowed from text books and fancy novels equally.
