Tree of Life

This book contains three essays by Sõetsu Yanagi, Jonathan Safran Foer and Josef Albers.

In this book I focused on typography, the importance of negative space, and the game of black and white that creates the letterforms. The concept was drawn from parts of the essays about the significance of seeing and knowing, as well as comprehending the life that happens in-between the facts.

Since one of the essays compares art and science, I set the text in the shape of a tree that can be seen in the cross-section of the cerebellum and is known as Tree of Life. The project was fullfilled in response to a brief by Daphne Geismar.
