Summer of slants
I’m pretty happy about summer flying by. I can’t wait to say goodbye to sticky, humid weather and hello to light jackets and scarves. Meanwhile, I’ve been keeping myself busy.
In April, a friend took me to the Antiquarian Book Fair and I was introduced to the world of collecting books. I didn’t know what to expect but I found many inspiring books from the olden days that I wanted to spin into my own work.
This is one of them:
The Slant Book’s images and text are also slanted on the slanted pages to tell a story about what happens when a stroller, with a baby boy inside, is inadvertently rolled down a long hill. What a genius idea! How could I use that slant to tell a story in my own way?
1. Ghost Seasons
In this case, the slant lets me showcase all the seasons at once.
From top to bottom: Winter, spring, summer, fall.
Summer to fall
Winter to summer
2. Ghost City
Here, the slant make the buildings look more epic. I think this book looks best open on display.
