Two Texts on Type

Two Texts on Type is a hand-bound, do-si-do book, inspired by the significance of typography as a visual means of communication. The book combines two pieces of writing: Pablo Neruda's, Ode to Typography, and Beatrice Warde's, The Crystal Goblet. The design choices (typesetting, paper, color) for each piece befits the manner in which each writer addresses typography; The Crystal Goblet is more traditionally set, while Ode to Typography is more expressively set. The double-sided, do-si-do book is held together by a belly band, that also serves as the cover.
