WHAT WE SEE WHEN WE READ BY PETER MENDELSUND




A hand-stitched hardcover book, printed on grey paper. In the source text, Mendelsund discusses the way we visually interpret literature in our minds. To represent this, I chose a blank rainbow arch as the main repeated element. While a book can provide us with a structure that guides “what we see when we read”, the true image we form is our own. In the same sense, the blank rainbow is not a rainbow at all, it is the suggestion of a rainbow that the viewer may fill in themself (hence, the atypical coloring of rainbow on the cover). Every individual page and chapter head is unique and relevant to to the text. Below are some of my favorite spreads.
