Eight Books Zine

8 Books

The premise of this project was to design a small printed book as well as an
ebook as a companion piece. This project was created while I was at MICA
and each student was to visualize eight influential books in our lives. I chose
eight non-fiction science books as mine and used a simple painted circle as a
base element to illustrate each book. 

Using Abode DPS, the printed book was converted into an interactive ebook.
My book title “The Sum Of Me” featured animations of the design elements around
the circles, activated by tapping the screen.

Joe Zeff Design helped our department prepare our books for digital publication.
The collaborative digital project titled “The Mutant Library” showcases
every version of the “Eight Books” project and can be found on iTunes.
