Experiment typography created for Georges Pérec's The Page
Book Design
Experimental Type
Nina Andorf
Using Georges Pérec's The Page (a poetic essay on the anatomy and journey of the parts that make up writing on a page) I was able to visualize Georges words using type as image.

By experimenting with typographic forms and finding ways to create texture with them, I was able to use them as a medium to illustrate his ideas. Although some experiments were more about the literal representation of his words, such as how they can be organized on a page, others were more metaphorical diving into theory and philosophy of words, alphabets, and sentence structure.

The final product was a book comprised of several layouts that visualize his words in a way that's both typographic and at times highly conceptual.
